Hi Ed,

It should run.
I`m running the 2.4.18-4 kernel under RedHat 7.1, runs fine.
What I did is update the binutils and gcc RPMs under RH71 with the ones 
from RH73 and then compiled the 2.4.18-4 sources.
RH72 will prolly ask you to update the binutils and gcc, too, before you 
can install the RH73 kernel RPMs...
