So I downloaded and installed kernel-source-2.4.3-12.i386.rpm You can always opt to go for the Rawhide version of the kernel - available in source RPM. There is often a much-more recent version of the kernel available for you to tinker with. Mind you, after installing a Red Hat source RPM-based kernel, do a make mrproper, and then copy the .config file for the default configuration you wish to support.
