trying to install openVZ software

I'm running 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 kernel under a Vmware virtual machine.
my VM has 160mb RAM, 6Gb HD, and intel p4 Processor.

i downloaded ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.i686.rpm and also ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.nosrc.rpm and ovzkernel-2.6.8-022stab078.10.src.rpm.

following the quick insallation guide i run the rpm command.
a process is executed with a progressive bar.
at the end back to the normal cursor.

following up with the guide, i open /boot/grub/grub.conf file and i ADD (because i couldn't find that lines inside that file) the line as written there (just modifing the number of the verion .1 with .10).

the same with sysctl.

i tried the same operation with the 3 kernels.

rebooting, i get the message kernel not found.

what's wrong?

note, in the meanwhile i tried to install kernel-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012.i686.rpm

i did the modification following the guide and rebooting i get the error reported in the image attached(kernel panic).

I also followed the "How to modify initrd image", but the init script mentioned in the guide is rather different from the one i get from "initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012.img" file.

so i replaced the old conf files and I inverted the 2 'title' bloks in grub.conf file.

below the grub file.

I hope I've been clear

[root@localhost ~]# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
# 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/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img

title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img

title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 
        initrd /initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5.026test012.img
[root@localhost ~]#
can u please help me?
