Well two things. I assume that in your /etc/fstab your root device is
designated as LABEL=/. Is that right?

Now normally I would expect the lines:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/
   [Linux-bzimage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x18e473]
 initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img

 to look like:
 kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/
    [Linux-bzimage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x18e473]
 initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
 
 unless /boot is on a separate partition. Is it a separate partition?
