No it is not possible to install a 2.4 kernel on an FC6 system, support for this is not available normally, far to many packages have to be changed in order to support a 2.4 series kernel. Why do you want a 2.4 series kernel???

Fedora Core 6 will be EOL'd on December 7, 2007;

Once again, no 2.4 series kernel support is in Fedora Core 6.

No reason to fret about USB corrupting devices under the 2.6 series kernels either.
