Red face TV in Vid out ?.......Help!

Ok here are my problems i hope someone out there will help me.
Im running mandrake 9.2 fully updated on an AMD XP1700 system.

How exacty do you recompile a linux Kernel? Im pretty much lost after i unzip it into a new folder. I have tried to read up on it but i think im getting all the makes out of order because everytime i think i get it right it turns out bad. So wich makes do i need to do in what order. Plus could you expain what each make does i would just like to understand what going on behind all the typing.

Im thinking of upgrading to the 2.6.1 kernel but im having problems with that also much of wich is not understanding how to recompile.

Im trying to run freevo wich i have installed and have working but i cant get the tuner of my Pinnacle PCTV Rave working corectly. From all my reading i need to install the latest bttv drivers wich i did from dinary rpm i got from the mandrake cooker. It seemed to work but my tuner still doesnt work and now my sound card doesnt work. Now if i understand right i need to recompile after installing but i havent done that yet i wanted to get sound working again first.

Forth and last
I need to get vid out working on my ATI Radon 9000 Pro .......
