just use yum to update your kernel.

Make sure you do not have a Wireless card installed, and if you do have your drivers ready to recompile for the new kernel.

Also, if you use NTFS, ATI-FGLRX, or NDISWRAPPER, you will need the kernel-modules too.

You can download those from http://messinet.com/modules.php?name=Downloads

That's no problem, a kernel update won't affect these settings.
