    it would be helpful if you posted exact error message

    what task are you doing that requires a 2.2 kernel?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Do you have an installer for the old(er) version of Red Hat? The one that can work with the 2.2.14 kernel? If so, then you should install it in a virtual machine, and build the 2.2.14 kernel there. Then you can test it out before deploying it. In any case, it has been years since anyone was using the 2.2 kernel.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
