One caveat: naming it "kernel-rt" avoids the unpleasentness of having to
deal with yum not wanting to install an "older" kernel e-v-r-wise even

the stock Fedora kernel will "bump" the rt kernel from the first place
in the boot order. So when that happens you will have to edit
"/boot/grub/grub.conf" to point grub (through the "default=" line to the
zero based entry that corresponds to the latest rt kernel...
