Linux kernel

I have upgraded my kernel to a hugemem kernel and when I run rpm -q kernel I get this result:
$ rpm -q kernel

When I run uname -a I get this result:
$ uname -a
Linux host.domain_name 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELhugemem #1 SMP <date/time> 2 007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Is there something more I need to be doing with the kernel or is there a file I need to adjust to have the rpm command show the appropriate kernel version??

Jan SpringerCommented:
To my knowledge, this is standard RHEL behavior.  

Your only other option is to look in /boot (ls -t so sort from most recent to oldest).

try to search using
rpm -qa | grep kernel
