Great feedback. You are all dodging around the basic question though
and thats why doesn't centosplus show all it's kernels when i do the
yum list all kernel*?

centosplus repo *is* enabled in my Centos-Base.repo file..

The behavior with the list command *seems* to be that it only shows
the most recent kernel which happens to be 2.6.9-34.107.plus.c4. When
i look in the RPMS directory i see a unsupported kernel for which doesn't appear in the list (as well as many more).
