Recovery from a wrong kernel install...

I snagged an src from an unknown location. (Yes, my bad.) It was supposed to be the e.25 kernel for AS 2.1 (kernel-2.4.9-e.25.src.rpm). After building the file, it dropped BOOT, doc, headers, and source into my /RPMS/i386 directory. I installed them using "rpm -Uvh package". Now when I look at my /boot/grub.conf file, I see the new entries say "Red Hat" and not "Red Hat Advanced Server" like the original e.3 kernel entries display.

Another clue that this was the wrong version of kernel is that no enterprise rpm was created...

Now for the dilemma: I plan on using the "rpm -ev package" command to remove the bad kernel rpms and then install the correct kernel rpms. Will this work? Or do I need to re-install Linux?

Thanks in advance,
