since centosplus is defined in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-base.repo ( 
default mode is disabled ), you can run "yum --enablerepo=centosplus 
<yum operation>"

every kernel install will upgrade your bootloader, the install scripts 
will detect if you have grub or lilo installed and update the param's 
accordingly. The centosplus kernel has a different release string, so in 
the grub or lilo menu, its easy to choose between the stock and 
centosplus kernels.
