There are differences between migrating from Red Hat 7.2 to 7.3 and kernel upgrade; in above links you can find out everything about kernel upgrade.

Already tried that, compiled linux-2.4.18.tar.gz from source and everthing. We assume we are using lilo.conf and made the changes described. We dont have anaconda so those checks to find out which bootloader we are using didnt work. So im assuming it was lilo.conf because we found reference to an older kernel in there, that incidently didnt even exist, but anyway after answering what seemed like hundreds of questions we made the kernel, the last part being that we used the script you posted etc. We did not modify grub, maybe we should have. Rebooted the system, which was down for a long period and never came back up so we reverted back to the old kernal. Not sure if there was something in the making of the kernel our system just didnt like or what. Looked around for a rpm version of the kernal but could not find one for 2.14-18 anywhere. The one posted on rpmfind.net is for RH 7.3 i beleive but not for RH 7.2. So, any suggestions as to which kernel is stable and where i could get the rpm version. This is a Compaq 1.7mhz P4 so hopefully there is a kernel out there hat would be compatible. Thanks

I discussed there that if you are not an expert or have not enough experience do not try to install Kernel ask your technical officers of your NOC to do it for you.

However, it is not necessary to install kernel-2.4.18 on Red Hat 7.2 the latest version of Kernel provided for Red Hat 7.2 is 2.4.9-34 (build 34) Red Hat has applied all security patches
Exception to this is while you want to have GRSecurity that you can install GRSecurity 2.4.18 (Kernel 2.4.18) on Red Hat 7.2

Our NOC will not do it, these are unmanaged servers!

Thats what we are running, the latest version but Cpanel is complaining about the kernel otherwise we would leave it alone.

This message is to inform you that the
machine srv08.primenet.cc is running an older kernel which is known to have
problems with quotas and possible root security holes. We recommend that
you upgrade your kernel as soon as possible. If your admin does not
know how to upgrade your kernel; Most hosts will charge a
minimal fee to upgrade your kernel for you. For more information on
upgrading your kernel please see the below urls:

http://www.kernel.org/

http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html

Note: If your quotas are not updating you MUST upgrade your kernel.

!!! If you have never upgraded your kernel before, we recommend you aquire
assistance with the upgrade as a failed upgrade can result in an
unbootable system !!!

I wrote that Red Hat offers its own builds of Kernel build 34 is the latest for Red Hat 7.2, it has been patched for those security holes and is not vulnerable
and they offer 2.4.18 Kernel in red hat 7.3
but if you need 2.4.18 kernel for 7.2 just install GRSecurity 2.4.18
