Linux kernel versions

Hello all,

I am new to Linux and still in aw. I am installing a utility on RHEL5 that requires a kernel version 2.6.18-53.el5. I have installed my RHEL5 and when I type uname -a it shows a version of 2.6.18-53.el5xen, I understand this version allows virtualation. To change the kernel I was told to use a yum command "yum install kernel" and that would get rid of the xen extension.
It didn't work any suggestions?

You also need to make sure you change your GRUB menu to point to the new kernel
