Anyone experience upgrading RedHat 7.2 stock kernel to 2.6? Any tips would be helpful.

its just like any kernel upgrade, you have to read the docs under the Documentation/ directory, esp. README, there will be a list of software packages you must upgrade before attempting to compile/install the kernel.

Read that first,
upgrade those packages,
get the 2.6 source code,
use Faraz's guide on this board (search for it) on how to compile a kernel
then repost if you have problems or visit #linuxpakistan on irc.freenode.net
