Are you sure there is a problem with the installation of the new kernel --
it may just be that it doesn't like your hardware. (In this case just
reinstalling the package won't help) I'd suggest verifying whether or not
the kernel package is installed correctly. I imagine that the new kernel
you speak of is 2.4.18-17.8.0, so to check its installation use:

rpm -V kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0

If that comes up reasonably clean, chances are your hardware and the new
kernel don't like each other. If this is the case, you should file it in
Bugzilla at bugzilla.redhat.com. And, you'll have to stick with the older
kernel until the issues are resolved.
