from kernel docs, you are going to need:
Gnu C                         # gcc --version
Gnu make               3.77                    # make --version
binutils                   # ld -v
util-linux             2.10o                   # kbdrate -v
modutils               2.3.18                  # insmod -V
e2fsprogs              1.19                    # tune2fs --version
pcmcia-cs              3.1.21                  # cardmgr -V
PPP                    2.4.0                   # pppd --version
isdn4k-utils           3.1beta7                # isdnctrl 2>&1|grep version

for modutils, i have just taken the SRPMS from redhat 7.2/7.3 and rebuild it. i
also build a 2.4.18, but haven't time to reboot with it ;-)

and of course, iptables.
