You can get them from the nVidia site, but only for certain kernels and distros. You can download the kernel source and install it, though, which would be far better.

Try http://www.rpmfind.net, or http://rpm.pbone.net, and look for kernel-source. Grab the appropriate one, and install it, then compile your driver.
