The kernel test might be a good option. I'll look into this more this

You will have to download and install them manually as they are not part
of the repository. You don't need all the rpms that are there. Get only:

from the i686 directory:

from the i386 directory:
(needed only if you want to compile new kernel drivers - but this kernel
has been compiled with gcc 3.2 so you are out of luck in 7.3 :-)

To install the kernel:
  (do **NOT** use rpm -Uvh as that will erase previous kernels!
   you have been warned!!)
  rpm -ivh kernel-up-2.4.20-1.12.ll.acpi.i686.rpm
To install the alsa driver:
  rpm -Uvh alsa-driver-2.4.20-1.12.ll.acpi-0.9.0-44.i686.rpm
To install the kernel sources (optional at this point):
  rpm -ivh kernel-source-2.4.20-1.12.ll.acpi.i386.rpm
