Spell your words out and write clearly, please.
Don't know what source RPM you downloaded, so we can't tell you how to compile it. You also don't say what version/distro of Linux, either, so it's hard to give you any help, when you don't provide any details.
Google has lots of information on how to compile a Linux kernels. First hit:
Also, you install a source RPM with the standard "rpm -i <package name>" command. You then have to go into /usr/src/packages/SPECS, then build the 'real' RPM package with the rpmbuild command.
