it should be listed in your boot config file, either /boot/grub/grub.conf or /etc/lilo.conf whcih means it will be listed when your system first begins to boot, and as the message says, select it.

btw. why do you insist on saying "Kernal" when even the messages and filenames you've posted all say "Kernel"? just curious....

Well, first you have to restart the computer.

Since it's listed at the top of your grub.conf it should be the default kernel that loads, but to make sure when your grub loader appers (after your system bios readings) you can use your arrow keys to select up and down...select the 2.6.6-1.435.2.3.

Now, if you are using lilo you may want to make sure that it is listed in the top of your conf.

There's also a boot loader gui in Fedora under settings or utilities that allows you to assign the default kernel to load...err, in gnome anyways not sure if it is is Kde.

I don't know, I've never researched it. Maybe someone else is kind enough to help you out.
