Proper Way To Replace Existing Kernel With Earlier Version

i would like to replace the exiting kernel in one of my Fedora 11 installs with an earlier kernel from a Fedora 10 Unity Spin...so i can use it to bring ATI functionality to Fedora 11.

also... i recall there being a way to unpack rpms and 'repackage' them using a different kernel development set...how is this done?

In a few words, you cannot. It's not the kernel, it's also X. Either use F11 with it's original packages and the latest kernel in Koji or settle with another distro.
