Cannot find FC3 kernel source
With uname -a I get:

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 #1 Thu Apr 7 19:23:49 EDT 2005 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux.

I want to recompile the kernel, but I don't find the Source RPM. Where can I find the SRPM of this kernel? Which is the kernel name: Linux_2.6.11-1.14_FC3 or kernel_2.6.11-1.14_FC3 or any other?

You can find some kernel source RPMS here:

But I don't see the one you're specifically looking for there. If upgrading your kernel doesn't throw your system out of whack, then upgrade and you can use one of the sources at the link above.

I do: yum list *2.6.11-1.14*, and I get:
Installed Packages
kernel.i686 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 installed

I do: yum upgrade 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 (also with *2.6.11-1.14_FC3*), and I get:

Could not find update match for 2.6.11-1.14_FC3
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

What can I do now?

Yum doesn't like to install a specific version of a package. It grabs the latest one only.
You'll need to either use another package manager or download and install the RPMs yourself.
