RedHat kernel

I need to install an update. My RedHat 7.3 installation will not work without the new DAC960 drivers (as the installation is on the RAID array).

I have to boot to rescue mode and then I have access to the system. The only problem is I am not certain where my kernel subtree is located. Here are the commands I need to run:
**********************************************************
  cd /usr/src
  tar -xvzf DAC960-2.2.10.tar.gz (or DAC960-2.4.10.tar.gz)
  mv README.DAC960 linux/Documentation
  mv DAC960.[ch] linux/drivers/block
  patch -p0 < DAC960.patch (if DAC960.patch is included)
  cd linux
  make config
  make depend
  make bzImage (or zImage)

Then install "arch/i386/boot/bzImage" or "arch/i386/boot/zImage" as your
standard kernel, run lilo if appropriate, and reboot.
**********************************************************
I am also not certain how to "install" the image (if I can compile is) as my kernel.

Please help.

The linux subtree is in /usr/src for RedHat linux. There should be a directory called "linux" or "redhat" in "/usr/src".

If you want more informatin on compile a kernel, you can see this page:

This was not the problem. I have actuall discovered the problem. It was that RedHat did not install the SMP Kernel by default (this is a dual processor capable board with only one processor).

When I reinstalled and chose the SMP kernel, it came up perfectly.
