Question can't boot new added kernel 2.6.4


I'm a newbie in linux.
I've added a new kernel 2.6.4 using a howto
(i removed a dot after www in the adres so i can add this url)

After i've done everything the howto says (without errors), i can't boot the new kernel.
This is how my grub.config file looks like:
(i've made some changes to try to make it work)

# 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/hda2
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.4)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.4 ro root=LABEL=/
	initrd /initrd-2.6.4.img
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
	initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
What do i do wrong?
