From time to time I hear that machines hang after a kernel-update. 
Why doesn't YOU create a multikernel-system with the old _and_ the 
new kernel, so you can choose to boot from the old kernel, if the 
new hangs?

The 2nd question is, why there are only rpms to download? Not 
everyone knows how extract the sources from a rpm-file.

If you would like to build your own multikernel-system, to keep the 
old kernel you have to use something like

rpm2cpio kernel-source-2.6.* | \
cpio -i --make-directories --no-absolute-filenames
