Down to here you were ok.

Why did you do this part? It should not be necessary. Just install the
rpm. Just for giggles you might want to try:
rpm -V kernel-*.rpm
That should return nothing. If it returns errors do a man rpm to
see what they mean.

In addition uname -r will tell you the running kernel. That should
match the kernel rpm. Unless of course you really wanted to build
a custom kernel in which case you most likely missed a few steps.

Works is always a good thing. :-)
