OK, go grab a kernel source from or preferably your local

untar it to /usr/src and make a symlink so it appears as /usr/src/linux

cd /usr/src/linux
make mrproper
make menuconfig or xconfig or simply config
Choose your hardware as best you can or use one of the default configs on a
standard redhat installation.
make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install

add a new kernel entry to your bootloader du jour [Grub / Lilo]
reboot and thats that.
