No guarantees, but:

Get 2.6.11. Nothing else. Not Unpack
2.6.11. And apply 
to 2.6.11. Not to ... :)

This should work. At least it did here a few minutes ago ...

Something like:

tar -xzvf linux-2.6.11.tar.gz
cd linux-2.6.11/
bzip2 -cd  ../../patch-2.6.12-rc2.bz2 | patch -p1 --dry-run | less

If you see everything went well give him the whole package:

bzip2 -cd  ../../patch-2.6.12-rc2.bz2 | patch -p1

Perhaps a bit dated but one might still get the most important ideas
behind patching kernels:
