Default Centos 5.2 - Upgraded Kernel


I am running Centos5.2 on my thinkpad t60 laptop.

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

using the following link.

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.
I ask because I need to get Fuse installed but I think it installs with the wrong headers because when I run 'modprobe fuse' I get the following output
FATAL: Module fuse not found.

If you built the kernel the traditional way, then there's no rpm package, which means yum doesn't know anything about it.
The kernel-headers are already installed because you built the kernel yourself.
