Yes, you can install as many kernels as you want, but only use one at a time.

yum install kernel-2.6.x.x.x.x.x

Then edit grub.conf and choose the kernel you want to use on startup.

You'll need to reboot your computer for the new kernel to be loaded.

Dear verdepollo

Thanks for your help

I tried your command, but it reports: No package kernel-2.6.12 available

Can you give me a working mirror link to install kernel

Just be aware that while you can downgrade your kernel, you may render your system unusable if you do not know exactly what you are doing.
