Can't load new kernel for Fedora 3


I recently installed a new kernel but GRUB did not list the new kernel so I went into the GRUB.conf file and manually added the new Kernel. However it did not work. Can someone tell me what I did wrong? The current file is as follow:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,7)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=2
timeout=15
splashimage=(hd0,7)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
