Question FC3 - how to get and install kernel-source package?


I am familiar with all RH installation, but I am a new Fedora user.
I need to install a driver for Sagem F@st 800 DLS modem.
kernel-source package is a mandatory.

How can I get the kernel-source package for FC3?
Is it included in distribution? iso cdrom ? SRPMS iso cdrom? iso DVD?

Thanks for help

it should be on cd1 or 2 of your fedora cd's. it will definitely be there somewhere, and it will install just like any other rpm "rpm -Uvh kernel-source.blah.rpm"

The Fedora Core 3 Release Notes mention this:

"In order to eliminate the redundancy inherent in providing a separate package for the kernel source code when that source code already exists in the kernel's .src.rpm file, Fedora Core 3 no longer includes the kernel-source package. Users that require access to the kernel sources can find them in the kernel .src.rpm file."

Read the notes, they are on disk 1 of the installation disks.
