You can check the kernel-source RPM for rawhide
(ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/) I
believe it was at the 2.4.17 level when I looked a few days ago.

It has every conceivable combination of CPU/SMP with ext3 built as a
module. You can just use the corresponding kernel RPMS "as is" or use
the source .config file (in /usr/src/linux-2.4/configs/) as a guide to
build your own.

YMMV but "it works for me" - for testing I've added
external-to-the-kernel modules (like ALSA/JFS/upped lm_sensors to 2.6.2)
using their headers (to get the modversions) without rebuilding the
kernel binary and the computer hasn't melted or exploded yet.
