Hmmm, why do you want to rebuild from source?
You have to "cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS" and rebuild from the spec file,
for example:
  rpmbuild -ba --target=i686 kernel.spec

0.3.rdt packages are available from the planetcore repository in fc4. If
you have apt properly configured:
  apt-get update
  apt-get install kernel
should give you the list of kernels currently available.
