Default Installing kernel options from source

To add kernel support for my wireless card. I updated my kernel from


The update was successful however now when I run 'yum list installed' I get

kernel.i686 2.6.18-92.el5 installed
kernel.i686 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 installed
kernel-devel.i686 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 installed
kernel-headers.i386 2.6.18-92.1.18.el5 installed

Is there something I must do to inform yum that I am now running 2.6.27

Also how would I update my kernel headers and devel

Is there a command to view my currently installed kernel-headers and kernel-devel.
I can use uname -a and it displays the running kernel.
How would I install my kernel-headers and kernel-devel from source.
