Where's Fedore 2's source?


I've managed to successfully install and configure Fedora 2 on my laptop. The only thing left is installing my SMC W2635 PCMCIA card. I've been looking around the web, downloaded the drivers, and the instructions require accessing and rebuilding the kernel source. But in /usr/src/ is nothing! No files in it. I'm looking at it in root and I see nothing, what's going on? Was it suppose to be there when Fedora's installed? If not, where can I get it? I trust that the kernel is 2.6.x. Or is there another way to install the drivers? Any help would be great.

When you install you need to make sure you install the development packages.
I would say that the easiest thing to do would be to upgrade, and select the development packages.
