Well, you don't really need to do that. You can have multiple kernels
installed and you don't need to boot into the "newest". When installing
a kernel alone you will need to specify which kernel (version and
release) if it is "older" than the newest available. Plus you should
disable the "installn" yum plugin (or whatever it is called), I included
instructions in my previous post about fc5 support - otherwise kernels
will be erased that you may need to boot into, the default is to keep
only the last two kernels.

Hmmm, that won't solve the problem. The kernel you are talking about
comes from the official fedora update releases, you should be installing

I don't quite understand this last question...

If you install the Planet CCRMA kernels through the meta packages as in:
  yum install planetccrma-core-...
you should get all the required components, I think. 

Did you try to do that and it failed? If so, do you happen to have the
exact error messages that were printed?
