Yeah I was just thinking the same thing, Jeramy did you run a make
xconfig or so and configure the kernel options, I think RedHat keeps a
kernel.config of their installed kernel in /boot which you can use to
compile the redhat kernel, if you didn't do anything like that then you
compiled a kernel with basic config options :-)
