Erm. "man find" is one of the most hideous manual pages on a linux
system (man tar comes close) - so a bit help from your side would have
been nice.

a) use locate whereever you can
b) find / -type f-name "kernel*.rpm"  -- this recursively (from /
   downwards) finds file which begin with "kernel" and end with "rpm"
c) This is not needed anyway, as those packages are ALREADY installed.
