kernel patch update how to

Hi All,

I need to update my redhatas4 kernel with kernel-2.6.9-67.0.20.EL.src.rpm.

When I run this

[root@localhost tmp]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-67.0.20.EL.src.rpm

warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root
warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root

########################################### [100%]
warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root
warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root
warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root
warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root

After reboot, I check my version with uname -a,

[root@localhost tmp]# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.9-67.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Nov 7 13:56:44 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

there's nothing changes so I think I did not install the kernel properly and run it again but nothing changes.

What should I do to properly update it?

Thanks in advance.

actually that was the wrong download, it should be in the rhn network so i download this kernel-smp-2.6.9-67.0.20.EL.x86_64.rpm.

and it works like a charm.
