This is a good place to start:

It's a link on kerneltrap.org's HowTo.

the kerneltrap article is great an pretty straight forward. I googled "2.6 kernel migrate" and found a plethora ( i like that word) of information. There are also 2.6 rpms available from Red Hat if you don't wish to deal with compiling the kernel urself.
