I realized that now..I was using 64Studio and its realtime kernel is called multimedia..I thought thats what the mm stood for..I downloaded the RT patch ..but theres no RT patch for 2.6.28.
.so im trying to patch 188.8.131.52 with the .2.6.29 patch so i can use the 2.6.29 RT patch..
So Ive got that part straight..but Im still runing into problems..
strat@frostbite:~/linux-184.108.40.206$ patch -p1 --dry-run < patch-2.6.29-rc5
But Im still running into some problems with it finding previous patches at giving me hunk failures..

Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! Assume -R? [n]
Im applying the right patch to the right kernel source..Just not sure why Im getting hunk failures..
Ive tried googling linxu kernel patching..but nothing is ever mention about what Assume -R means or about hunk errors.
