That's right you're supposed to use the EL26 Clockwork Mod Kernel (which is for gingerbread).
When you mobile odin the el26 kernel the phone reboots.
It won't boot past the samsung galaxy splash screen as the kernel and rom you have installed will be incompatible..
The easiest way i do it is like this
DL the EL26 CMW Kernel
Copy to internal SD card
Download and install mobile odin
Turn on wifi
Open mobile odin and let it download whatever files it needs
When mobile odin open press the kernel field and select the el26 kernel you downloaded
Press the flash button
Press the button when prompted to check the md5
It installs then reboots
I usually pull the battery and then put the battery back in
Press the power button and volume UP button at the same time, when the samsung galaxy splash appears release the power button but continue holding the volume up button.
Then it will boot into Clockwork Mod Recovery
Follow the rest of the OP's install steps, reboot and you're done.
