My computer shows:
Linux host.-----.net 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Oct 6 06:21:39 CDT 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
After running yum update shows:
kernel i686 2.6.9-42.0.3.EL update 11 M
Install 1 Package(s)
Update 0 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
Total download size: 11 M
Is this ok [y/N]:
I should respond with yes right?

But as Jeremy mentioned it will not update you to the latest kernel. The latest kernel as of today is 2.6.19, but you can see your yum is updating it to 2.9 only.
It is always suggested to upgrade to the latest stable version, which needs to be done from source.
