If you have /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5, you *should* also have
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5 and /boot/initrd-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.img
installed as well:

sauron.deepsoft.com% rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.18-194.8.1.el5
sauron.deepsoft.com% rpm -ql kernel-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5 | grep boot

It looks like somehow your /boot/grub/grub.conf file is not getting updated.

Is grubby / mkinitrd installed?  (You didn't do something like uninstall
mkinitrd? or delete /sbin/grubby?)

sauron.deepsoft.com% rpm -qf /sbin/grubby
