Install gcc. It is on your CDs or grab it from a RedHat mirror.

Do what MFCRich seggested, first rpm -i gccxxxxx.rpm ( will also be on your installation cd's), AFTER that and AFTER you have successfully installed the kernel source, you can begin to re-compile the kernel.
There are several ways to re-compile the kernel, my favourite way is via X, so, while in X, I open a console, cd to /usr/src/linux[xxx] where [xxx] is the version of the kernel you currently have there...
Then, type
make xconfig
This will bring up a nice menu driven config util where you can make all the changes etc. When done, save & exit. Now, from the same console type:
make dep
make clean
make modules
make modules_install
make bzImage

Then, cd arch/i386/boot
cp bzImage /boot
Now edit your /etc/lilo.conf (or /boot/grub/grub.conf)file to inlcude the new kernel ( note, I always keep my old kernel in tact for incase some of the options I have chosen was bull...) so I normally add my new kernel image (bzImage) to the existing stuff in /etc/lilo.conf  (or grub); save and exit. Commit the changes by typing
lilo ( no need if you use grub)
Now ;
reboot and select the new kernel from the menu ( remember to call it something else in your bootloader's conf file.

Voila!
