You're clearly not booting from the same kernel that shows up as
/boot/kernel/kernel, so it sounds as though you're booting from 
a different partition than whatever is showing up as /boot/kernel 
once the system is up.

Look at your disk partitioning. Also, make sure that you aren't 
mounting something on top of /boot in your /etc/fstab.
