Up2date downloaded the kernel installed it but hung at the end and 
did'nt complete,on checking /boot there was'nt a 2166.nptl.img file
and no entry in grub.conf for the kernel.
So I removed the kernel and D/L from my mirror a new one installed
rpm -ivh and the same problem,so I used the command "mkinitrd /boot/
initrd-2.4.22-1.2166.nptl.img 2.4.22-1.2166.nptl" and it hung,then I
added 'strace' and below is the last few lines of a long output.

rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
pipe([3, 4])                            = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [INT CHLD], [], 8) = 0
_llseek(255, -4173, [11275], SEEK_CUR)  = 0
child_tidptr=0xbf5790c8) = 26599
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGCHLD, {0x8075920, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x6eda58}, 
{0x8075920, [], SA_RESTORER, 0x6eda58}, 8) = 0
close(4)                                = 0

Any one able to help get this kernel up

  Thanks  david
