That depends on what support you compile into the kernel, what modules you compile, what hardware you have....I mean what do you mean by 'the effects on red hat 7.1'? New kernel releases are primarily to support new hardware or features or to fix bugs present in previous kernel releases.

Arrow effects

Most probably the effects you mights experience are:

- lack of sound (install just alsa)
- lack of network/internet (add your module name to load on boot)
- missing mount points (mount your drives again)

Some other may also appear or some of these might not appear. I am not sure since I tried it on SuSE 9.
