Change default buffer size of tape in redhat


How do i change the default buffer size of tape in redhat?
I have a suggestion which is to set in

To change the default buffer size for tapes

add a resize parameter to the startup of Linux.
An example for a grub.conf entry is the following:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-24.7.x)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.7.x ro root=/dev/hda2
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-24.7.x.img

But my kernel will be upgraded when there is an update. Is there any other location where i can set it permanently? like in sysctl.conf?
