AFAIK, up2date doesn't have a concept of keeping a given number of
kernels. 

During up2date the previous kernels are not removed and "install" is
done on kernel packages...not "update".
The up2date configuration is kept in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date

removeSkipList=kernel*;

prevents removal of kernel packages. 

So, you are faced with having more than 2 kernels installed unless you
manually remove them....  So, you are virtually assured of having more
than 2.  :-)
