Not really, the patching is done by using the .spec file. I suggest you
have a very close look at this online viewable .spec file:

http://download.atrpms.net/production/sources/fedora-2-i386/atrpms/kernel-2.6.spec

You don't run menuconfig when using the kernel SRC.RPM. At least not in
the straight way like you would when using the plain kernel source tree
(patched or unpatched). This is because the SRC.RPM comes with prepared
.config file for the different architectures and changes have to be
applied to them. Else the rpmbuild will fail.
