The GRUB menu showed the following kernels in the menu:

Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom3.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom2.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom1.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686)

until the kernel-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686 updated in the system and now the GRUB shows:

Fedora (2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom3.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686)


When happened to these kernel versions?

Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom2.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.7-134.custom1.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686)

The /usr/src/kernels directory shows these kernel versions:

ls -l /usr/src/kernels
2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686
2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686
2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i686

Check /etc/yum.conf for "installonly_limit". This is probably set to 3 which means FC keeps 3 kernel installation. But I wonder why it also removes your homemade kernels.
Setting installonly_limit=0 will disable this "feature".

Thanks. I updated the /etc/yum.conf file with 0.
