Failed to Load Kernel

The issue was in my BIOS, of all places. I was going to see if I could
do install from a Gentoo LiveCD from April 2k8, and it kept on hanging
near the beginning and lighting up all the lights on my keyboard (caps,
num and scroll lock). So I went into the BIOS, loaded optimized
defaults, changed a few things I really needed (usb keyboard on startup,
for one) and viola! I was able to install. Now I'm getting the same
irksome message as the other gentleman about an invalid partition. Going
to delete all the partitions I created, recreate and install bootmgr
instead of just a normal MBR.

Thanks for all the help. (:
