1 redhat puts every thing in /boot including The standard
kernel compile puts the vmlinuz and in /. look and lilo.conf
and be sure which kernel and are being referenced.

2) on boot redhat runs kerneld and modprobes/insmods (I forget which) lots
of modules. If you aren't running modules, don't load kerneld and run
through the init scripts and remove the references to modules you don't

3) remove unnecessary modules from /lib/modules/2.0.x for your kernel.
