Easiest is probably to grab the SRPM for that kernel version and recompile
it. But at the same time, you might be able to just snag the RPM for that
kernel version and transplant it. CentOS6 is similar to Fedora 12 in
package versions  so it may or may not work so well with F14 pieces.

might create. **
Here's what you asked for ... the SRPM of that F14 kernel at  and the
non-PAE RPM at  and the PAE one
