Hi Bob!

 > What have I done wrong? Any suggestions appreciated.

Can you show us the output of mount? And which harddrives and partitions 
do you have?

What is the hda2 and hda3 in your fstab? Do you see a boot folder with a 
newer kernel there?

I think the Label assignments in fstab and maybe /boot/grub/menu.lst 
confuses the installation process.

You can safely replace Label assignments in fstab with the real 
partition. So

LABEL=/1   /   ext3   defaults   1 1
LABEL=/boot1   /boot   ext3   defaults   1 2

becomes for example

/dev/hda2   /   ext3   defaults   1 1
/dev/hda1   /boot   ext3   defaults   1 2

Afterwards you can use rpm -Uhv 
/mnt/cdrom/Fedora/RPMS/kernel-2.6.5-1.358.i586.rpm to install the kernel 
again from the 1st Fedora CD.
