Why to upgrade the linux kernel?

if possible I would advise using 2.4.9-31 from redhat.  The virtual memory
in previous kernels is unacceptable for production use.  If you see any sort
of load it uses all it's resources swapping kernel pages.

Don't forget important security updates or major bugs that prevent normal
operation and can not be worked around.

Those are the prime reasons for Red Hat to bring out errata packages.
