First the latest released kernel is 2.6.19 so this premises of yours a 2.6.22 kernel is not possible.

Second the support for sata interfaces for this old RHL9 2.4.20-6 kernel is extremely limited and I doubt it is supported.

Third if you do in fact have a version of RHEL 4 installed on a system is not possible to install any 2.4 series kernel on a system without having problems. The package module-init-tools for one does not support this.

Thanks lenard,
my kernel is 2.6.9-22.ELsmp
my OS version is Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update 2)

I think the only option is i have to go for RHL 9 to get installed 2.4.20-6 kernel.

RHL9 is old and is not supported (for over two years), why do do think you need such an out of date kernel?? Between the compat libs and using kernel assume there is no reason to use an outdated kernel and OS.

The RHEL4 2.6.9-22 kernel has been replaced also the current version is 2.6.9-42.0.3, you might want to update the system(s).
