8.4. GRUB-0.97

I solved that problem by doing this:
grub-install --root-directory=/boot/ /dev/sda

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/boot/grub/grub.cfg

but now i got a new problem.
 " kernel panic , not syncing:VFS:unable to mount root
fs on unknown-block(2,0)"
I read that i might need to install SATA drivers for it to work.
i recompiled the kernel with alla drivers named SATA i could find, but 
no luck.
Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for all the help.

What is the output of 'mount'       ?
What is the output of 'ls /dev/sd*' ?
What is the output of 'ls -l /boot' ?

You can remove the search line above.  It is not valid for LFS.
