Try typing in "rpm -i <whatever kernel package name>". You can also do a find on the DVD, to find whatever packages are named kernel, and go from there.

How, exactly, are you getting into "rescue mode", if you're not booting from DVD???

If you're booting from hard drive, mount the device manually. If not, then boot from DVD.
