I downloaded the binaries patch-generator0.91beta7 rpm. i follow the instructions(i.e. ./configure and then make in PATCHES, then a patch -p1 < /xx/xxx/PATCHES/xxxxx.patch)  to patch the kernel and everything wents well when i do a make config in the /usr/src/linux, configuring the LVM as a modules. 

Where is your kernel source located?  Did you specify this location when you
ran ./configure?  (ie, './configure --with-kernel_dir=/usr/src/linux-2.4.2-2')

A log of the exact errors would be nice.  I really don't have any idea what
is going wrong unless I can see those.

Did you install the new kernel and reboot?  It may be possible to get along
without rebooting if you are building the kernel modules, but you will
definitely need to reboot if LVM is built into the kernel.

It should work, but RedHat puts a lot of additional patches into their
kernels, and it is possible there is a conflict somewhere.  Did the patch
apply cleanly?
