As far as I can see latest right now is kernel 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5 with build date 02/Jul/2010. Any reason why you can not 'yum update' your kernel version?

Code:
 ~]$ apropos bad
badblocks            (8)  - search a device for bad blocks
Note fsck usually provides a front end for this as in 'fsck.ext3 -c'.
