I recovered my 10.3 system with the 11.2 install dvd. I booted the

Sounds like the 11.2 recovery gave you an 11.2 kernel in /boot, with an
11.2 initrd, but didn't give you the 11.2 kernel rpm with the modules.

I suspect your 10.3 kernel is still under /boot though, and it may even
be available as a boot option already in /boot/grub/menu.lst, but if it
isn't, edit that file and make it point to the correct kernel file.

If the kernel isn't available under /boot, you may have to reinstall the
rpm, which should take care of menu.lst automatically
