Another question recommented I use extlinux. It displays the rather unhelpful message "Boot error". Why wouldn't it work? How can I debug the problem?

Disk layout: on /dev/sda rEFIt is installed. /dev/sda4 is / and there is no separate /boot partition.

Method of installation:

extlinux /boot

extlinux.cfg

DEFAULT Gentoo
LABEL Gentoo
  KERNEL /boot/kernel
  APPEND -
