No you do not need/want to recompile. 

What appears to have happened is that the directory and modules were
removed (I.E. /lib/modules/2.4.22-2188-nptl/*) but not the kernel or the
initrd-2.4.22-1.2188.ntpl files.

Check your /boot dir and see if all the kernel files for ver
2.4.22-1.2297.ntpl are present and then reboot using this kernel.

IMHO if all goes well you would be better off modifying your
/boot/grub.conf file and booting off this kernel since it is an upgrade.

If you want to use the older kernel for some reason then reload the old
