Hi Jim,
I would think it shouldn't allow you to update an FC3 package with an
FC2 one.  From what I have seen on the list about this, simply change
the '2's to '3's in the sources file.  Is this the change you made? 
You certainly should not need to register with RedHat.
I did a fresh install of FC3, here are the relevant (ie, unncommented)
lines of my sources file:

yum fedora-core-3
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/$ARCH/os/
yum updates-released-fc3
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/3/$ARCH/

yum-mirror fedora-core-3
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/fedora-core-3
yum-mirror updates-released-fc3
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/updates-released-fc3

Note that these will be wrapped and of course are not in the file. 
Each new line begins with "yum...".  Of course, if you have added
repos, then you will need lines for them as well.

Did you get this problem solved?  The last message in that thread that
I see from you says you were going to bed :).  Let's not mix the
threads, so reply to that thread with more info if you have it.  I
don't think the FC2 repos in the sources file is the problem, because
you definitely have the FC3 kernels from your "rpm -qa kernel" output.
