Subject: [gentoo-dev] GRUB stage1 file not found

Today I tried to install Gentoo Linux 1.0_rc4_pre2 .
I am not very familiar with linux and followed the installation guide
step by step.
The vi confrontation in step 4 had an additional quirk for me because 
of the german keyboard layout. ( colon is uppercase o-umlaut) ....
But the stopper was step 5: 
At the GRUB prompt I typed:
root (hd0,12)
setup (hd0,11)
and grub said checking for /boot/grub/stage1
and /grub/stage1  file not found

rc 15

According to the install guide the directory is /boot/boot/grub/ 
where the stage1 file actually is.

What can I do?
