Maybe it is not Linux distribution :)

Thank you for your response. Here are the results of what you suggested:

According to the outputs that you gave, you boot 11.1 kernel,
while in /boot directory you have 11.2 kernel.

The initrd was updated so it is not culprit for stray kernel.

Other reasons can be:
1) You updated system and kernel, but forgot to reboot.
2) some other boot medium that loads 11.1 kernel.
Check CD/DVD drive, plugged USB sticks.
3) Mess in a /boot/grub/menu.lst, although I can't think of scenario
that will not produce avalanche of errors
