1 When I run "grub-install/dev/boot" (following the manual) I i get the error "grub-install: error: cannot find a GRUB for /dev/boot.  Check your device map"  I looked at the /boot partition and there is no device map. 
3 I'm installing gentoo running debian.  I have another os so the boot partition should be properly set up.  This is on an ancient hp proliant dl385, Gen 1.  debian is running grub 2.02~beta3-5.  This machine does not use uefi, and the raid driver is in the kernel.
5  Do i need to hack together the device map or?  Any help appreciated, thank you. 
7 Unfortunately i'm more familiar with grub legacy than grub2, studying manual now (it's very verbose and takes a bit to absorb enough to use it.
