This is just an example to give you an idea of what to do. Depending on how far back you go you may get dependency issues. I was able to install an fc6 kernel on f7, but it was a close match. Had I gone further back I may have run into dependency problems.
It did not replace the existing kernel when I added the older kernel. The post processing in the rpm for kernels always keeps another kernel around in case the update or in this case an install didn't work properly. There should be two choices on the grub menu when you finish. Your existing kernel and the old one that you install.
