I cannot find "boot=" in the grub manual. I do see it referenced but
unused in my Fedora grub.conf:
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that

# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda3
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
Note that the last line is commented out! Perhaps you should do the same.

I note with interest that you comment out a line that should work?
The errors you mention at the end would suggest that if you browse to
"/dev/sda8"/boot you would not find kernel
/boot/vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-52.fc7. To find out, boot into a working
linux partition, make a directory in /media called sda8 (humm - can
you boot to an extended partition??) and then mount using mount -t
ext3 /dev/sda8 /media/sda8. Then become root and browse to the disk
using cd /media/sda8/boot (or nautilus as root) and look for kernel

Do you have "root (hd0,7)" in the stanza? I guess if you do I wonder
what gparted gets (using device sda) if you issue the "print" command.
I also wonder if you can boot from this partition if it is extended.
