As you've been asked MANY times, you need to provide DETAILS when you post a question. Upgrading one version of Linux is different from another, frequently. What version/distro do you want to upgrade???

Through openSUSE, I can run yast, select the new kernel, and it will install. A reboot brings it up. Since you provide no details, there's not much else folks can tell you.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux what? There are several different versions. And the place to get a kernel/update packages (and 'step-by-step' directions), would be from Red Hat support. Based on some of the questions you've asked, I'd not attempt a kernel upgrade from source...and if you want a kernel for RHEL, you'll have to get it from the Red Hat Network, which you have to PAY FOR.

You rarely post follow ups or solutions, or even say thanks.

...and you STILL haven't said if it's RHEL 5.1 through 5.8, which is what was asked. Posting the same information again tells us nothing new, nor does telling us what you want a second time.

AGAIN, if you want to do this on Red Hat Enterprise Linux here are the steps:
  • Be sure your Red Hat Network access is paid up.
  • If it's not, pay for it
  • Run the update through yum
  • Questions? Read the documentation on Red Hat's website and/or call Red Hat support (both of which you have access to, since you're paying).
  • Backout plan? Again, read the documentation on Red Hat's website and/or call Red Hat support (both of which you have access to, since you're paying).
Red Hat enterprise is NOT FREE...AGAIN, if you want the updated Red Hat kernel, you can only get it through Red Hat, and you have to pay for it

Seriously???? If you're not going to pay attention, why bother asking a question???

AGAIN, since you can't seem to look at what's already been told to you:
AGAIN, if you want to do this on Red Hat Enterprise Linux here are the steps:
  • Be sure your Red Hat Network access is paid up.
  • If it's not, pay for it
  • Run the update through yum

Clear enough?
