the kmod's

Hi all,
Quick questions: What exactly is yum-fedorakmod? Is this the only way to upgrade kernels? will the kmod-nvidia drivers work better if you upgrade the kernels with the kmod version?

Here is a quote from the site above:
Plugin for Yum to handle installation of kmod-foo type of kernel modules, when new kernel versions are installed. kmod-foo kernel modules is described by the Fedora Extras packaging standards.
