    You can get the sources from kernel.org. The steps are basicly this
    extract source /usr/src/linux
    make menuconfig
    make dep
    make bzImage
    make modules
    make modules_install
    The new kernel will be in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage

    You can copy the new kernel to /boot and setup your bootloader to use it. There are also howtos on kernel.org for compiling/installing your kernel. If you do a search on this site, it has been discussed many times.
