You have to specify a little more info. Firstly, did you actually remove the old kernel? If it still is in /boot, you just add a option to boot into it in lilo or grub.

Code:
backup_mbr                 message
boot                       symvers-2.6.8-24.5-i386-default.gz
config-2.6.8-24.5-default  System.map-2.6.8-24.5-default
grub                       vmlinux-2.6.8-24.5-default.gz
initrd                     vmlinuz
there is contents of /boot

I want to downgrade to default kernel off the CD which is 2.6.8-24 instead of 2.6.8-24.5

I upgraded the kernel using YOU (Yast online update)

The old kernel does not appear to be in the /boot directory unfortunatally

Check your distro cd. It should have the kernel rpm package. If not, check /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24. If you can install from distro cd, go for it. If you use /usr/src/linux-2.6.8-24, you have to compile it again, which takes time. Here's how.

Yep the CD's have the rpm's

However It wont let me install them because it detects that I have a newer kernel.

I don't want to stuff up the installation, should i use the --force switch?

And will this remove the newly installed kernel?

Yes, I think it will. So use the --force switch.
