Unhappy Can't find the source after -Uvh *.src.rpm


Okay, stewpid n00b question:

I just downloaded the RH kernel 2.4.20-31.9 srpm and now I can't find the source!!
I know how rpm is supposed to work, and I already used

Code:
rpm -Uvh kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm
but I've looked in every subdirectory of /usr/src, and I can't find it anywhere! There's a bunch of stuff in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES that has the name linux or kernel followed by a version number, but the version numbers only go up to 2.4.20-20, and they all end in .config or .patch. None of them are directories.

Up until now, I've been using up2date, but MS... I mean RH dropped the free update account support, so I have to do all this crap on my own.

Anyone know where the source code could have gone?

tnx
