From the release notes, it seems like it should be available, however, I don't see any separate kernel-kdump kernels since FC6, with the latest being:
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/6/i386/
  kernel-kdump-2.6.20-1.2962.fc6.i686.rpm   25-Jun-2007

Following the kernel spec:
http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewcvs/rpms/kernel/F-7/kernel-2.6.spec?rev=1.3405&view=log

shows:

For F8:

It seems the capability was disabled during F7 and is no longer supported ?

If this is correct - the release notes {live} need an update, along with the howto at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC6KdumpKexecHowTo
