Yum is supposed to leave your current kernel alone. If it is trying to remove the kernel you booted with, then that is a bug that should be reported. For FC6, there is the install-only plugin for yum, where you can set the number of kernels to keep. Setting it to 0 keeps all of them until you delete them yourself. In F7, this is built into yum, and the option is in the yum config file. Again, set this to 0 if you want to keep all installed kernels. If you do not want yum to install the new kernels, that is a bit harder. You can set yum to exclude the kernel RPMs, but then t will not show them in the list of available packages, and this may not be what you want. (I am sure someone has a way to do it - just not me.)
