Do you have two disparate grub.conf files?  /etc/grub.conf is supposed
to be a link to the real file /boot/grub/grub.conf.  If you've copied
things about, you might be working on a copy instead of the real file
(which could be done by breaking symlinks, or having more than one boot
partition, and post-boot-time /boot is different).
