Fedora Core 3 Install Kernel Source

I have had a really hard time installing FC3 kernel source, and i was just trying to get a clear guide on how to install it - preferably using yum. I have tried doing
yum install kernel-sourcecode
and it just keeps telling me "no match found"

also when i do
up2date --get-source kernel
it sort of works, but 1) i dont know where it downloaded to 2) i dont really understand what to do from there and 3) It usually downloads a file called kernel-2.6.11-1.27_FC3, but i really need the smp kernel source (kernel-smp-2.6.11-1.27_FC3) and cant find that source file anywhere.

Look at post #4 in for how to install the kernel source.

Isn't smp just a selection in the .config file “Processor type and features” section?

# CONFIG_SMP is not set
