It's been awhile since I've rebuilt RH kernels from the SRPMS, but the
easiest way in the past (and I'm sure it still works) would be:

rpmbuild --rebuild --target i386 kernel-2.6.5-1.332.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 kernel-2.6.5-1.332.src.rpm

Now in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i686 would be your kernel (assuming you want
the i686.  If you want i586, substitute appropriately) and the
kernel-source package will be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

I last did this during the 2.4 series RH kernels, the 2.6 ones may be
different, though they do not appear to be.
