Total Newbie Kernel Question


Using Redhat 8.0 I am trying to install a couple of extras that require kernel upgrades.
Specifically I want to mount an NTFS partition and a PPTP client.

To get the PPTP client I need some new kernel with a different version that ends in mppe0 (to install mppe support - whatever that is - before installing pptp).

To get NTFS I also need a new kernel.

So my question: How do these things mix?
If I install the kernel with mppe support will the kernel for NTFS overwrite it?
Assuming I install these as binary RPMs, am I completely replacing my kernel each time?
If so how do I get them both to work.

Do I need to install them as source and build them?
How do I go about that?
For that do I need to load the source rpm for my current kernel (I chose no source when installing as workstation)

all advice and pointers welcome.

you need to have the .rpm one to do not have to compile
here is it:

Thanks,
but this is the rpm kernel update for what exactly?
Does it have the mppe and ntfs support?

How do I get both?
And if I got them one at a time in this form, would installing mppe override the ntfs support that I got?

Or can I assume that any kernel includes all the features of any other kernel with a lesser version number?
And if so, why does the mppe kernel have mppe0 in its name.

that updates i think every type of kernel
the ntfs support file is at http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/redhat.html (thanks to MasterC for this link)
take care
