It being Red Hat has nothing to do with it.

The Red Hat Users Guide has a chapter on compiling a custom kernel.  I
found this to give you all the information you need to build a kernel,
including some good habits (like backing up your current kernel and
modules and including them in LILO).

Make sure that you have the kernel-headers and kernel-source packages for
the same kernel installed.  NOTE:  you want to install the kernel-source
RPM, *not* SRPM.
