Have you checked whether 2.4.9-31 does? They tend to backport drivers
when they put out newer kernels. If it *does*, you should be able to
just use the updated boot.img (or bootnet.img or whatever) from redhat's
updates, along with their update disks for new drivers, without building
a whole new kernel.
