Why not just remove it with "yum remove yum-fedorafaq"?

Surely that is quite an old kernel?

I upgraded FC-4 to FC-5 on one machine like this without any problem.
It took over 12 hours on a machine (Sony Picturebook C1VFK) with 192MB RAM,
with 1025 packages installed and 1850 "transactions".
Actually, there was one problem.
On re-booting, X failed.
Comparing /etc/X11/xorg.conf on a machine running FC-5
I saw that the kosher version had
in place of the explicit FontPath's in the old xorg.conf .
But when I changed this it worked fine.
