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

    2.6.18-92.1.18.el5
    to
    2.6.27

    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.

    Thanks
