    For centOS, i would actualy recomend using YUM to manage kernel upgrades.

    $ yum info kernel

    will show all versions available, then as root just type

    # yum install kernel-2.20.XX

    or whatever version you want. If the version you want isn't listed with the first command, you may have to compile your own using the guides davidanand posted, but yum is alot easier, and less error prone.
