Just use Yum or Apt.

PS: Don't use Fedora.us, Livna.org and Fedora Extras for updating.
Their repositories are not compatible with all the other ones.

Start with DAG:

I don't use grub so i'm not sure on this, but with lilo, after you edit the config file you have to /sbin/lilo as root. Now, i'm not sure if you'll have to do this with grub or not.

Can you post your grub config file and your /boot?

this is my grub :
# 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 (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda6
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABLE=/1 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9.img


and this is my /boot:
. grub System.map-2.6.5-1.358
.. initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img System.map-2.6.9
bzImage-2.6.9 initrd-2.6.9.img vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358
config-2.6.5-1.358 lost+found vmlinuz-2.6.9
.config-2.6.9 System.map

thx again for everything and i will try this Yum and Apt

Try this in your grub config...

title Fedora Core (2.6.9)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.9 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9.img

I'm not sure, but for one you misspelled Label, second you just had /boot/bzImage and not /boot/bzImage-2.6.9 so the boot loader isn't going to find it.

I hate to do this by trial and error, but try this and i'll explain why..

title Fedora Core (2.6.9)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /bzImage-2.6.9 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9.img


The boot loader looks in the /boot directory for the kernel image, so when you specify /boot/bzImage it's looking for the dir boot inside of /boot. I could be wrong but that's my guess.
