As you removed it earlier, yes. There doesn't seem to be any dependancy 
for it. AFAIK it's not necessary for operation, anyway, it's only 
necessary if something has to be compiled as it contains all the c header 

Your current state is now not very clear. Please provide the following 

rpm -qa kernel*
ls -l /boot
ls -l /boot/grub
cat /boot/grub/grub.conf

Besides that I suggest you get a good book on using Linux on the console. 
If "Using Linux" by Que is still getting published I suggest that. They 
provide a wealth about Linux and the shell and you can use them for years. 
I have some rather oldish ones that still provide good value. You have now 
three Linux boxes or so if I got it right. You cannot do everything just 
"by desktop", you are a "Linux shop" now and you *have* to start learning 
about all the nice console tools sooner or later, better sooner ;-)
