I install 2.6.4 on a RH9 and these were my steps.

Put my linux-2.6.4.tar.gz on /usr/src

tar -zxvf linux-2.6.4.tar.gz && cd linux-2.6.4
make xconfig
(When xconfig finished)
make && make modules && make modules_install
mv arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.6.4
mv System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.4
ln -s System.map-2.6.4 System.map

Then I reconfigure my /etc/lilo.conf
I don't use grub, so I cannot help you on this step.

Best regards
