You can get at your grub.conf in either the /boot/grub/ or /etc/
directories.  Or if you prefer, you can edit it as /boot/grub/menu.lst
 They are all the same file.  Edit it and see if there are entries for
each of the kernels.  Also, are you seeing the list of entries?  FC3
defaults to a "hiddenmenu" view that hides all the entries until you
hit a key.  FC3 also defaults to booting the newest kernel that was
install (which is annoying if you don't boot Fedora by default).  If
you installed the kernel update, then it should create an entry.  If
not, just copy the old one and change the numbers around to point to
the new one.
Oh, please note: there is no need to run grub-install (as Rich said)
if grub is working, ie if grub loads.  Changes to grub.conf do not
require a reinstall.
