Your question was too vague..
Do you want to update the kernel source or a vmlinuz in /boot?
Either case would be reasonably trivial, but I wouldn't put something
like that in a production environment without a _lot_ of testing. I
wouldn't put any kind of auto-update procedure in place for any software
without testing it on several identicial local machines.
You could always use the Red Hat network to manage the machines, or get
rhup or any of the other RPM update tools. (Yes, yes, Debian has
apt-get, but I'm fairly sure James is thinking of RH..)
Check freshmeat for a couple of scripts to update the kernel source from
