Sorry you are hitting more problems. 

That means most probably you have not disabled the additional yum module
that only keeps the latest two kernels (and erases the rest - there are
instructions in the web page on how to disable that). Or maybe something
else that I have not yet experienced.

Yes, the regular fc5 kernel does not have the realtime patches. In
addition to oldpackage=1 you need to disable the "keep only two kernels"
feature. Even then some users have experienced problems with the yum
dependency resolution - in this particular case yum sucks... (I'm also
assuming that the yum you have is the Planet CCRMA one, not the original
Fedora Core yum). 

As recommended by others I probably have to rename my kernels to
"kernel-realtime-*" or something like that so that there is no
possibility of conflict with the standard kernels. I have not found a
minute to do that yet.
