If the hardware is sane, that should not be too much of a problem.
It takes about 15 minutes on my Athlon 500 with 256MB ram. You should be
able to survive at least that.

Just tar them and copy them over.
tar -cjf linux-2.4.x-xfs.tar.bz2 /boot/*2.4.x-xfs* /lib/modules/2.4.x-xfs
copy it over, unpack, edit lilo.conf, run lilo, make sure everything is
there, cross fingers and reboot.
You could also compile the bzImage and modules, tar the tree and copy it
over, untar your tree and then run make modules_install && make install.
Everything will then be put into place. You only have to edit
lilo.conf, run lilo and reboot.

They don't need to be but you can run ./Makepkgs in the cmd tree which
will generate either rpms or debs of the util programs.
