This looks like you aren't running the fsck as root. Either that, or
the file modes on the device are screwed up.

Possibly something isn't mounted.

So what does an ls of the kernels look like? Normally, installkernel
moves your old kernel to kernel.old, removing any previous kernel.old,
then installs the new kernel as kernel.;

No, the next step is to reboot to the new kernel you just installed.

You really haven't given us a lot of information to go on. Knowing
exactly what commands you run, and seeing real error messages would
help a lot.
