Downgrade Fedora Core Kernel

Can anyone tell me how it's possible to downgrade the Fedora Core kernel? For years I've been running a Slackware system where I'm used to configuring everything myself but I've now switched to Fedora Core 2 because I don't have much time anymore to mess around with things. I could just download the kernel I want from but then I don't think it would be fully supported by the hardware detection system and other fancy things like that. I'm currently running 2.6.6 but there's some really strange problem with my mouse where it doesn't work properly on anything above 2.6.4. So I'm wanting to downgrade to 2.6.4

Please help,

So I could just download the vanilla kernel from and it should work fine? Without any problems? I thought there may be a genuine reason why Fedora supplied RPM based kernel packages?
