Hmm... without looking at the dates of the files I had downloaded the

  kernel-2.6.32-71.18.2.el6.centos.ayplus.i686.rpm  <http://centos.toracat.org/kernel/centos6/centosplus-testing/i386/kernel-2.6.32-71.18.2.el6.centos.ayplus.i686.rpm>              09-Mar-2011 11:36

files let me try the

  kernel-2.6.32-71.24.1.el6.centos.ayplus.1.i686.rpm  <http://centos.toracat.org/kernel/centos6/centosplus-testing/i386/kernel-2.6.32-71.24.1.el6.centos.ayplus.1.i686.rpm>            08-Apr-2011 19:06   21M
