Welcome to LQ.

The 'kernel source code' is provided by the package
kernel-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.src.rpm ( or similar ),
which installs to : /usr/src/kernels/ , with the
command # rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.29.4-167.fc11.src.rpm .

what sources code you have separately?
common step to install sources in linux
go to the sources directory
./configure
make
make install
OR
check there may be files README or INSTALL, you can get installation procedure from those files
