It looks like your kernel source is in an inconsistant state. I'd suggest removing and reinstalling the kernel-source RPM.

I type" rpm -qa|grep kernel " ,

and it shows

kernel-source-2.4.21-40.EL
kernel-2.4.21-40.EL
kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.14
kernel-doc-2.4.21-40.EL
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-19

what should I do?

Remove the kernel-source RPM and reinstall it.
