Did you put the new kernel and the updated menu.lst in the  
'protected' partition or did you do all this while normally booted?

You need to boot to the 'rescue console' and make sure you have put  
the new kernel and the updated menu.lst in /dev/sda1, otherwise they  
are not visible at boot time - the user partition /dev/sda2 is not  
loaded until after the grub has booted the kernel and loaded the init  
ram disk.
