'yum update' should grab the fix as soon as it is ready for each
release.  Fedora FC2 is already there as kernel-0-2.6-1.435.  I've
always questioned the wisdom of using old versions for 'stability'
because when a new exploit for anything is discovered the developers
will almost certainly fix tje most current code first and then the
backport patches into old versions take additional time.
