I did:
yumdownloader kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
sudo rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs \
        kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm

yumdownloader comes from the yum-utils package.

Thanks, Lars. I followed your suggestion and now I have my kernel replaced.

I, however, didn't. I saw this too late...I yum removed kernel then yum installed kernel.i686 and got a grubby error. Now my kernel doesn't appear at all in grub.conf

Can someone tell me the proper way to get it back? Or if there's no proper way that doesn't involve reinstalling using anaconda, just paste me their one so I can modify it?

Testing can show the presense of bugs, but not their absence.
