If you're using the RedHat kernel, you don't have a 'vanilla' kernel.
You can get a 'vanilla' kernel at http://www.kernel.org. I built the
2.4.20ctx-17 kernel a couple weeks ago with no rejects. It may be helpful
to grab the .config file from the solucorp ftp server and start from
there. Make sure you deselect jfs, and for a slim kernel (and faster
compile) you'll want to deselect the features that don't apply (scsi,
raid, etc as applicable).
Hope that helps
