there are a 2.6.30 compiled in koji.
I am using F10. Would it be safe for me to install
kernel-2.6.29.5-84.fc10 from koji? Or even kernel-2.6.30-6.fc12 keeping
in mind I'm no tester? :-)

The F10 kernel build you refer to is pending as a future test-update:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/kernel-2.6.29.5-84.fc10,hal-0.5.12-15.20081027git.fc10

To your original question, no. Getting any software from koji, rawhide, or even updates-testing involves a certain risk factor. I am not saying "don't do it," just that you asked if it was safe, and the answer is no, or at least "not really."

Kernel 2.6.30 has a LOT of new stuff in it, unless you have a need for something new or want to start being a tester, you might wait on this one, or try it in a VM first. VM is addictive, I have f{9,10,11,rawhide} VMs, all four major BSD flavors, and Solaris. Oh, and a Win7 beta with about 20 minutes uptime on it.
