Backward compatibility

Hello guys,

I am trying to set up a big jump: going from RedHat 6.1 kernel 2.2.12 to
RedHat 7.0 kernel 2.2.16.

For backward compatibility, I would like to compile an ANSI C application
on 7.0 and run on 6.1.

How is it possible ?

Do I need to copy /lib/ (the one of 7.0) on 6.1 system ?

Many thanks
