include files for linux

I wanted to install vmware. It wants to know where "the matching C header files are matching my kernel"

there is nothing in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

i installed kernel-source.src.rpm but doesn't give me any headers.

i tried /usr/include/linux. but doesn't find all the headers. what should i do?

vmware needs to make a module for my running kernel.

I have fedora core 4 test 2.

thanks fo the help.

There should be a kernel-headers package (at least, most distributions feature this).
