I don't know about yum, but with rpm you can just do:
	rpm -e kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.c0
and that should take care of your problem.

I don't know if yum understands versions of packages.  I think it sees each individual kernel version as a different package.  I know with apt they were all stored as kernel#2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.c0 and effectively read as separate packages.

But rpm should solve your problem.

Hope this helps,
