whenever you do a yum update and it updates the kernel it will delete the kernel that is 3 revsions old (meaning you'll only have two kernels on your system at a time). If the numbers on the site were higher than yours that means you could probably stand to do an update. Other wise the site is out of date.....

Good luck!

I got this website from someone else for the nvidia updating

http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...es.html#nVidia

this also updates the kernel in that process?

If not how do you go about updating the kernel?

To update the kernel you can issue the command
Code:
yum -y update
This will actually update everything. I try to do this weekly to stay updated. If you haven't done it in a while it will take a while to download everything. I'm not sure but I think 'yum -y update kernel' will work (or kernel-smp) if you only want to update the kernel. I know there have been some fixes to flaws in the system so you may want to update everything.
