There is an updated kernel for CentOS-3.1
 
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-183.html refers.

Updated files are :-

all in updates/i386/RPMS/

kernel-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.athlon.rpm
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm
kernel-BOOT-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i386.rpm
kernel-doc-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i386.rpm
kernel-hugemem-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm
kernel-hugemem-unsupported-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm
kernel-smp-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.athlon.rpm
kernel-smp-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm
kernel-smp-unsupported-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.athlon.rpm
kernel-smp-unsupported-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm
kernel-source-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i386.rpm
kernel-unsupported-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.athlon.rpm
kernel-unsupported-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL.c0.i686.rpm

These are available at http://mirror.centos.org/3.1/ and should be on all 
mirrors within a few hours.
 
To update to the latest version 'yum update kernel' should be 
sufficient. 

In addition CentOS now has a set of i586 rpms in the new 'contrib 
directory'

To access contrib add the following stanza to yum.conf :-

[contrib]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Contrib
baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/contrib/$basearch/
gpgcheck=0

Note that [contrib] rpms are provided by third parties and not 
necessarily tested by cAos/CentOS developers. They are not signed and 
thus gpgcheck is 0 for the stanza.
