Generally it is possible, but I guess you'll have lots of problems. Many of the options for kernel 2.6 don't exist for kernel 2.4, so you'll have to find out a working kernel configuration completely by yourself.

To have it very easy try the kernel script from SykHigh @ sysopforum.de
It is very easy to handle, supports the 2.4 and 2.6 kernel tree (just the select the actual release), detects hda & sda devices for settint up the bootloader (grub / lilo) after sucessfull compilation.
It is not a guarantee that it works fine afterwards, cause you have to configure the kernel, but it's reducing time.

Hi,Ben

what is your meaning ?Do you mean that I can get some kernel script from e-mail:SykHigh @ sysopforum.de and it will make life easy to do my work?

Thanks for your suggestion

I'm not sure, but maybe Ben is referring to this: http://sysop-forum.de/thread.php?threadid=1686
