Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Can you tell us why you need another kernel?
Is the one you have not good enough?
Usually you may want to learn something, add something or improve something. A Kernel is the vital part of your computer, if you don't know how to add another kernel, then what do you know about the kernel?
Many people don't bother to do anything with the kernel.
I believe Linux has only one running kernel at a time.
I understand you want to replace the one you have?
If you replace the one you have, your computer may become
inoperative, it means you may destroy your installation if
you don't know what you are doing.
Make sure you know what you want to achieve, go to goole and
type in "linux compile kernel". This is a huge subject.
THere are tons of articles on this subject.
In spite of some of the posts, above, you can have as many kernels on your system as you like. I'm not a Fedora user, so I can't answer directly, but this page should be able to help you get your new kernel compiled and installed using the "Fedora Way".
Actually, you can have as many linux kernel. The modules are copied n installed in diffrent dirs in /lib/modules, so nothing messy. You might have troubles when configuring n selecting params as your need. That's it.
