What are the commands you ran to compile the kernel and install it. Also, what distro are you using? Are you starting from scratch? (i.e. "make mrproper") or are you starting with your distro's config file?

Did you run "make install"? This command will copy the compressed kernel image to /boot and update your GRUB file. Assuming your using GRUB. Don't worry about not getting it right the first time, it is trial and error for most of us.

Redhat should have a config file in /boot/config. After you do make mrproper you can copy this file to /usr/src/linux/.config then run make oldconfig.
Make sure you have the proper CPU selected.
