The kernel howto at www.tldp.org

The official site of the kernel at www.kernel.org

And I'm sure they have docs at www.redhat.com

Since you're using Red Hat, the easiest way to upgrade your system is to use the up2date utiltiy, First you need to register by running the following commands:

1. rhn_register --config #to configure the rhn_register put a proxy

2. rhn_register #to register to RHN

3. up2date --config #configure the up2date utility put a proxy

4. up2date #will automatically download and update your system

Or you may just download it manually from this site:
