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/*126.96.36.199-40.fc8
i am running sl5.2, f8 and f10. my last update of f8, was about a week
before eol, and kernel is 188.8.131.52-42. [ i do not recall a kernel update]
you can check http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/ to see what is there.
or you can check ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ 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, kernel.org among
in a free world without fences, who needs gates.

to mess up a linux box, you need to work at it;
to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.
