  Grab kernel from kernel.org and linux abi from
have patch for 2.6.12,2.6.13,.2.6.14 (and for 2.4.31 too)

It is same on every linux when compile from source - redhat,ubuntu,mandriva,suse,slack,debian

unpack kernel in any dir for example /usr/src/linux
cd /usr/src/linux

apply patch

patch -p0 <patch-name

You got 1 hook for 2.6.12 and 2.6.13 and it isn't important

grab .config from ubuntu kernel source and move to /usr/src/linux
make oldconfig

answer for yes for all binary question or for all question (yes or module)

You can call make menuconfig,make xconfig,make gconfig etc

When you configure kernel call

make dep bzImage modules-install

You got kernel in arch/i386/boot/bzImage
change i386 if you have another arhitecture 

move bzImage in /boot to vmlinux-2.6.xxxx - version kernel
move System.map from /usr/src/linux in boot in System.map-2.6.xxx 
add entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst


I have work on RH, too and grab ubuntu 5.10 (my first ubuntu) and make abi on this way
