The only potential issue that I can think of is if you need to build a
driver for your hardware.  If you installed from a CentOS CD/DVD and did
not need any new drivers to be compiled, then it should be safe to
upgrade the kernel.

There are dmraid issues with a couple machines, but you can just
uninstall dmraid if it is a problem in those instances.
