do you have pppoe installed? are you trying to do this during an
installation or do you already have rh9 set up?

grub afaik is console only. its fairly simple to set up.
This is C&P from the gentoo handbook which i use fairly often ;).

# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
default 0
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
timeout 30
# Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up :)
# Comment out if you don't have a graphics card installed

title=3DGentoo Linux 2.6.11-r11
# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r11 root=3D/dev/hda3

# The next four lines are only if you dualboot with a Windows system.
# In this case, Windows is hosted on /dev/hda6.
title=3DWindows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
chainloader +1

and of course starting grub

grub> root (hd0,0)          (Specify where your /boot partition resides)
grub> setup (hd0)           (Install GRUB in the MBR)
grub> quit                  (Exit the GRUB shell)
