What is the architecture of the corresponding kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 
package?  Check the architecture with rpm with the queryformat option. 
(Sorry, not sitting at a Fedora machine just now to check the exact format 
you need.  Something like 'rpm -q --queryformat "%{ARCH}\n" 
kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6'.)

The kernel-devel and kernel package architectures have to match.  I think 
yum is doing what it thinks is the right thing based on what you have 
installed.

So boot to another installed kernel, remove the kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 
and kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 packages, and reinstall them.
