First, get the correct name for the package you want to install. The
rpm output should have cued you in. Then, perhaps "yum install
kernel-devel-2.6.18 1.2869.fc6 i686" will give you the results that
                                             ^
Oops. Should not cut and paste using your data. Correct package name
is  kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.i686

you want.

Why are you relying on yum so heavily? It appears you know how to use
rpm. You could have used "rpm -ivh
path_to_package/kernel-devel-2.6.18.1.2869.fc6.i686.rpm".
                                                 ^
Again here: Should be "kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.i686.rpm".

(Path_to_package can be a URL or a local directory.)
