Yes, I understood. However, showing that other kernels work isn't a bad 
thing in terms of data collection. It helps me anyway be more sure when 
I go back and look later.

No options of that type, but I am somewhat concerned now about the way 
the kernel is booted. The grub line uses:

kernel long_name ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet

1) Why am I using a LABEL statement on a multi-distro hard drive? I 
don't think I labeled the root partition of the Gentoo installation, but 
this command seems a bit dangerous. What happens if there are two 
partitions labeled '/'? I'll change that to just go to /dev/hda9 for safety.

2) What are the options rhgb and quiet doing?

I'll try them both explicitly. Easy to make boot options in grub.
