Description of problem:
FC1 ships with the 2.4 kernel.  I have downloaded and installed the
2.6 RPMs for testing purposes.  However when I run up2date under a 2.4
kernel up2date will not download or even see the newer 2.4 kernels.  I
think up2date to should be able to update the 2.4 kernels even if a
newer version (2.6) is installed.  

With FC2 shipping with 2.6 kernel this will be a small problem, but
when the 2.7 and 2.8 kernels are available for testing, up2date should
be able 2.6 kernels.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install FC1
2.  install 2.6 kernel
3.  run up2date -l
4.  no 2.4 kernels are listed

Actual Results:  the updated 2.4 kernels don't download

Expected Results:  the updated 2.4 kernels should be downloaded and

well, a version of the kernel newer or later than 
the one available is installed, so up2date is
behaving correctly. 

Proper fix would be rename the test 2.6 kernels
to kernel2.6 if they want to be installed in
parallel with parallel upgrade paths.
