First FC5 and FC6 are beyond EOL(end of life) and are no longer supported. There will be no more official updates of any kind. Please update to a supported version. Fedora 8 is current and there is about 7 months of support left on it. Fedora 9 is set for release in about two weeks. If you want longer support try Centos. Centos is RHEL(RedHat Enterprise linxu) with the logos removed. It has a five year support life and is free to download. It is binary compatible with RHEL.
There is no need to rebuild the kernel. The ipxutils and ncpfs packages should cover what you are looking for and are in the standard repo.
