I was wondering about this:
I then did a
yum install kernel
and there was only one left.

I didn't install any .24 kernels, I've got a .23 that yum doesn't now about.
I think I'm up to six consecutive kernels that don't work.
After I wrote this, I booted my pocket .23 and found it didn't work very
well. So, I installed one this way - a handy hint for he terminally
cpio --extract -d
rpm -qp --scripts
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg --package kernel --mkinitrd --depmod --install
and that's what's working now.
Anyone else with this might add there two bob's worth here:
