What kernel are you trying to upgrade to? How are you going about upgrading? Have you ever done this before?

A failed dependancy:

It looks like it's trying to tell you to install a version of oprofile greater than 0.4. Google the error and see what you get - then see if there is an oprofile rpm somewhere on your installation disk you can intall.

Failing that obtain the kernel sources and compile it yourself. Its always a lot easier than using those damn rpm's.

I'd agree with the last thing codedv said. In the long run it's much easier, better, more educational to compile your own kernel. The kernel you come up with will invariably be smaller than the premade ones.
