Possibly because grub uses a different grub.conf than you think?

At this stage I'd recommend to get a Linux/Unix professional as this
seems to be standard stuff that you should know how to do and if you
don't, then leave it alone and let it do someone, who knows what he does.
Sorry if that sounds a bit harsh, but it looks like you are wasting the
valuable time of the developers with trivias.

Have you actually verified with 'uname -a' that this old kernel is running?
