Do I have to do anything so that the server from now on always reboots using the old kernel-2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 ?
yes.
in /boot/grub.conf: default=1 or a remove of the panic kernel.
('hope that the path is correct for xeon's)

How do I verify what kernel is in use now ?

uname -r

Is it possible to remove and prevent kernel-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 or newer kernels from automatically installing during a yum update?

yes and yes.
in /etc/yum.conf: exclude=kernel*

*or*

another trick:
in /etc/sysconfig/kernel: UPDATEDEFAULT=no

(not *the* answer to the question, but...)

Also, How would I go about troubleshooting the panic ?

or
(!) serial console output => bugzilla
