Well, no-one else seems to be able to help so I'll try. I don't have RedHat 7
but I've heard bad stories about people trying to patch RedHat kernels.

I recommend you download the latest 2.2 or 2.4 (your preference) kernel from
an ftp.kernel.org mirror and use that. The instructions in the LVM HOWTO should
be enough to guide you through it.

The most difficult part is to figure out which kernel options you need to set
- apart from LVM of course - to support your hardware. If in doubt build
everything as a module and it'll probably all work out fine.
