Even becoming root is not strictly needed if you set up a non-root build
environment, but...

$ su -
# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.6-1.424.src.rpm
# cd /usr/src/redhat

You can patch the sources as needed, and/or edit the spec file. Finally
you can run the command(s):

# cd SPECS
# rpmbuild -ba --target=noarch,i686 kernel-2.6.spec

If all goes well, you will find the new *.src.rpm in ../SRPMS, the
kernel-sourcecode* and kernel-doc* in ../RPMS/noarch and the kernel*.
i686.rpm files in ../RPMS/i686.

Normally it won't go well the first few times, but keep at it. There are
books available about rpm building, as well as other mailing lists.
