I have Redhat 5 and would like to re-compile the kernel with SMBFS support...how do I go about this?  When I first installed, I don't recall seeing an option for SMBFS(smb file system) support....

Any suggestions?

Go to your kernel source dir and do a 'make xconfig', then step
through all the sections or go to "Filesystems" directly. There,
you will see an option called: "SMB filesystem support (to mount WfW shares etc..)", select this option (or press 'help' first)
and recompile your kernel...
