depends on how bad you want to recover it.

what install of f8 do you have? is this from a regular install or from
a live cd?

check your f8 install is not a live, to see what is still there;
ls -l /f8mountpoint/var/cache/yum/updates/packages/*

i am running sl5.2, f8 and f10. my last update of f8, was about a week
before eol, and kernel is [ i do not recall a kernel update]

you can check to see what is there.

or you can check and pull a
live cd version if yours is from a live install.

if you still have live cd, boot it, then copy vmlinuz to you f8's /boot.

there are many archive/mirrors that will still have f8, among
them. google??


peace out.
