Gentoo Update

So I still don't have Gentoo running . . . haven't really fiddled with it much since I had trouble with Grub. I didn't know I could have Grub on my main hard drive (my c: with Win98 on it) so I had been fiddling with my BIOS trying to get it to boot off my e: (hdc). Anyway, I installed Grub on hda, and I can boot into Win98, but if I try to get into Gentoo it reboots. I thought I was picking the wrong drives or something, but some google searches suggest a bad compile might result in spontaneous reboots, so I'm going to re-emerge the system . . .
