Look in koji and search for kernel
As of now - 2.6.39 rc7 is being built for f16 and 22.214.171.124 for f15.
You can easily download the src rpms and build them on f14 (details how
to do it were posted within the last several weeks. Often the binaries
just work too - but if you use things like virtualbox you may need to
recompile due the newer gcc in f15 and f16.
I've been building newer kernels for F14 and the arrival of auto sched
in 2.6.38.x has been beyond amazing ... its def worth having. And its
pretty easy to do.
