I believe the windows setup messed up the mbr or something. I still don't understand how the process works as i'm new to gentoo (and grub) and I don't know what other details would be useful.
A friend of mine suggested that I use the command chroot along with a livedvd and try to remount the partitions and tinker with grub.conf.
He also suggested that I first use fdisk /mbr if I wanted to install windows on a linux machine. Of course sl will be unavailable until i make modifications to the bootloader of windows.
