I assume that explains the instruction to just edit grub.conf as the means of changing which kernel is selected on next reboot (after installing the desired kernel rpm).
A current version of Fedora would have different instructions for how to change which kernel will be selected by grub.
I was quoting the instructions I found without a way to confirm or test them.
