HOWTO? 2.0.24 Kernel?

I'm wondering if there is a clean way of upgrading kernels without
breaking the rpm dependencies etc. If there isn't can I find a
Kernel-2.0.24.axp.rpm somewhere? Shouldn't I be able to?

Why am I so worried? (on Intel) I had a 3.0.3 system that I had
upgraded to Kernel 2.0.0 via RedHat docs. Well... When I tried
to "upgrade" to RH 4.0 it complained (because I didn't have the
rpm database matching what was installed). Then when 4.0 came
up I couldn't compile anything, my libs/includes/kernel source
was fooed. At that point I just did the "install."

I have 3 other computers that I would like to "upgrade" if possible,
what should I have done in that situation?

And in the AXP case, what can I do to prevent that situation?
I really need a newer kernel so xntpd will work.
