let me start off by saying that i don't have FC2, i have FC1 on two machines. ordinarily (read: RHx) one could use redhat-config-packages to install the kernel headers. however, this doesn't work for fedora, as it looks in the wrong location for rpm's.
here is what i would try (and it worked on FC1 earlier today):
mount each of your installation discs and (assuming your cdrom mounts to /mnt/cdrom) you can :
you can ls to see all of the rpm's available on the disc (hopefully one of them is the kernel-source-(xxx)rpm. if not, try another disc).
when you find the disc with the kernel-source-(blahblahblah).rpm, copy it to your home directory.
cd to your home directory, and do:
rpm -ivh kernel-source-(whatever).rpm
you will need root priv to do the last part.
you can check that everything installed by looking for the kernel headers under:
in that directory you should have a directory that is linux-2.(whatever your kernel is)
