How are customer kernels supposed to be uninstalled?  Is it as simple as
removing the kernel source and modules in /lib/modules/[custom kernel],
editing grub.conf to remove the config for the custom kernel, deleting
related files in /boot, and changing the initrd and vmlinuz symlinks to
point to the "old" FC kernel?
