I _think_ you want "update kernel', but in any case the mirrors
are all screwy(TM):

its the same because kernels always gets installed not updated (to keep the system working if the kernel is broken)
ftp.wsisiz.edu.pl: repodata: no such file or directory
gulus.USherbrooke.ca: Metadata file does not match checksum
ftp.upjs.sk: ditto

Eventually it gave up, finding no match for "kernel".

yes but it was looking for the wrong kernel anyway (2.6.19-1.2911.6.4.fc6.x86_64.rpm)
This worked for me, but I knew exactly which file I needed:

rpm -i http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/5/i386/kernel-2.6.20-1.2300.fc5.i686.rpm

Yours would be:

rpm -i http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/5/x86_64/kernel-2.6.20-1.2300.fc5.x86_64.rpm



(Iam using fc6 ;) )

anyway thx, I will test it later today or tomorrow and report how it does
