when u install that .src.rpm

u will have .tar.gz/.tar.bz2 sourc file in /usr/src directory or more down that

also u will have a .spec file for building the rpms

Code:
rpmbuild --rebuild package-name.src.rpm
Then somewhere at the end, you'll see a line saying:

wrote: /some/path/to package-name.rpm

Install the rpm from there now.

What distribution do you have installed? Maybe you'll find an rpm for it.

Cheers, Boby!

EDIT: You can find rpm's here.
