Not upgrading a kernel on yum update

Is there a way to stop the kernel getting updated?

I am using livna's ati drivers and as the kernel is getting upgraded
its not installing.

This is the Error I'm getting.

---> Package kernel.i686 0: set to be updated

Missing Dependency: kernel-i686 = is needed by package

trying to use yum's exclude option and that's not working either

sudo yum --exclude=kernel-i686 update

How would I go about configuring the excludes by hand?
