You say you want to update, but 2.6.33 -> 2.6.26 is actually a downgrade. – Benjamin Bannier Jan 3 '11 at 15:12

You can use any kernel you want. To compile for Fedora, see this guide. Also, There are ways to compile your own custom kernel from source, with the Fedora Source RPM's, which are a bit easier to maintain.
