install kernel source errors


Just got my laptop back from warrenty serviced and found a fresh new windows install. Had to re-install linux so I installed FC3 from the dvd and ran up2date to get the latest patches. Also upgraded to kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3. When I installed ndiswrapper I got errors after make and make install. I think I need the source code for the kernel. so I opened a console and
[robert@localhost ~]$ su root
Password:
[root@localhost robert]# up2date --get-source kernel

kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.src.rpm: not an rpm package (or package manifest):

I really don't know what to do from here. Did I get the wrong package? or maybe a damaged package?

Run: rpm -Kv kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.src.rpm

Bad download I assume.
