Question compiling the kernel


this question has prolly already been answered but i couldnt find what i was looking for so here goes...
how do i compile the kernel in redhat 9?
if there is a graphical rather than a text based way to do it id prefer that.... also with my ati drivers they say(i might be wrong tho)that my card is only running agp 1x any help/advise on that one would be good. thanx guys

Instead of make menuconfig use make xconfig... that should bring you to graphical configuration.
