RH doesn't give you the kernel sources by default. They shoud be on one of your cd's though. Just mount your RH cd and intstall the RPM source file for your kernel.

I don't know exactly where on the cd it'll be. It should be on the first cd though. I run Slackware and not RH, so things are done differently. Look for a /src folder on your cd. Inside the /src dir. look for something like kernel-source-2.6.5-i686.rpm, whatever kernel RH ships with now a days. To install that package just run...
rpm -Uvh kernel-source-2.4.29-i686.rpm I'm no RH expert here, but I think you should use the upgrade option vs. the install (-ivh) option.
