Inspect the installation media, whether they be CD or DVD. Somewhere, probably the last disk of the set, you will find the .src.rpm files of every rpm installed (and not installed) on your computer. Install the .src.rpm, then cd to /usr/src/ and look for the directory naming your distro.. cd into that directory. Then look for the directory named SOURCE (use the locate command to reduce the time reqired to find that diretory). In that directory you will find a tar.gz file; the tarball. Unpack that tarball, selece the file, then edit to your hearts content.
