I'm not Todd but:

yum update

will offer to update any packages that are available for Fedora 7

yum update kernel

will offer to install the new kernel (kernels are always installed, never
updated) *and* to update the kernel-headers package. It will remove the
kernel (yum keeps two kernels installed) that you are not currently using
and it will remove the old kernel-header package. Yum will also write the
new GRUB config. Removing the listing for the removed kernel, adding the
listing for the new kernel, and making the new kernel the default kernel
to boot. To use the new kernel now you will have to reboot.
