Oh well, I tried.  I'm sending this to the list.  Sorry forgot to not
send it directly to you.  Be more careful to whom you are sending
replies, especially when gmail addresses are involved : ).

Yikes!  You really don't have a /boot/grub/ directory!  What is going
on here.  I also only see the newest kernel images in /boot/  Which
kernel are you running?  Try these three commands:
uname -a
fdisk -l
cat /etc/fstab

The first will tell you what kernel you have.  The only thing I can
come up with is that you (now?) have a seperate /boot/ partition and
things have gotten confused.  Perhaps your /boot/ partition has the
original kernel and grub directory, so grub sees it fine, but the
partition is then not mounted.  You then updated the machine, which
copied the new kernel into the /boot/ directory on the main partition.
 This would explain why your grub.conf was not updated, and why you
can only boot your old kernel.  It's a long shot, maybe, but it's the
only thing I can think of.  If this is what is happening, I don't have
a clue how you got there.  Maybe something went wrong with labelling
somewhere?  If you know the details of your partitions, send those
along with the output from the above commands.


Merry Christmas!
