there are config files for from installed kernel packages in /boot. 
i.e., something like /boot/config-2.4.22-1.2110.  Copy that to your
.config in your source directory, *then* change processor (and anythign
else you want to change).

Also make sure you're using the Red Hat sources, not stock sources, or
you may end up with some problems.
