RHEL's support contract explicitly forbids you to use a different kernel you compiled on your own unless RH's support authorized you to do so. Not happy with that? contact RH's fine support people and complain that a certain hardware is not supported with their kernel.
An alternative route: take the kernek from the latest rawhide. It generally contains all of RH's backports.
Ditto for Mandrake/cooker , and almost any other distro.
SuSE is a sore ommition here. No way to get the latest from SuSE/"unstable" .
