The kernel has been installed (you wouldn't be able to run Redhat without it). kernel-source is the source code for the kernel. Some programs/drivers require it as they need to use it to create hooks into your currently running kernel. Install the kernel-source package and that error message will disappear.
So it seems that I now have the source installed (/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-92.1.13-el5-i686/) by installing the kernel-devel & kernel-header packages (a suggestion from an IT friend). Unfortunately, when I'm installing, I'm still receiving the same error message. Is the kernel-devel package really the source needed? Also, I don't know a lot about kernel configuring, can someone point me to a good reference?
