Kernel headers doesn't contain anything that is different between 586 or
686, it's just modified header files from the kernel source.

Check and see what arch your kernel packages are really tagged as like this

# rpm -q --qf "%{name}-%{version}-%{release} %{arch}\n" kernel
kernel-2.6.22-0.5.rc7.git2.fc8 i686
kernel-2.6.22.1-27.fc7 i686
kernel-2.6.23-0.44.rc0.git16.fc8 i686

Is it possible these "ez" packages have confused matters?
