A quick prayer might be in order :)

Yes, all you need to do is a mk_initrd, but remember that the kotd kernels are
frequently broken. You'd do well to keep a) a rescue CD, and b) the older
kernel rpm around (if you installed the kotd with an upgrade, the old kernel
will now be gone)

After the reboot you will need to reinstall the nvidia driver, if you have
such a card
