Did you even read the error? It tells you how to fix it:
You probably need to install the Public Yum repository data from http://public-yum.oracle.com before yum will install that package.
# yum install kernel-devel-2.6.18-238.el5xen # /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup
Yes, it says that I am up to date
[root@localhost ~]# yum install kernel-devel
Setting up Install Process
Package kernel-devel-2.6.18-238.el5.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
I just did a yum install kernel-xen-devel and then ran sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run . Everything ran fine, now it just keeps rebooting and giving me the following error
<0>kernel panic - not syncing: fatal exception
Install the regular kernel, not the xen kernel. The xen kernel is modified to run on top of a Xen hypervisor, and may conflict with the virtualbox guest additions.
yum install kernel kernel-devel
edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and make the regular kernel the default, and reboot
Here is a snap-shot of my grub.conf, what should I change. I am fairly new to Linux. Thanks for your help

Change "default=0" to "default=1" and reboot
Thanks so much. I was able to load the Additions.
One last question.
I have a 1920X1080 monitor. I changed the /etc/X11xorg/conf file to put the mode in, but the 1920X1080 is not showing up in the Screen Resolution under System Preferences. Any ideas.
Modes "1920X1080" "1280X960" "1024X768" "800X600"
