Fetch it with yum, if it's in a repository. If not, roll your own.

Considering that there aren't dependencies on the kernel, not having it
in the package database really wouldn't be an issue -- or are you making
some point I'm missing?
If you're saying it's necessary and desirable to have a pointy-clicky
way of running bleeding-edge kernels, I question the premise.
