Installing Kernel Source in FC4

i am trying to get my WUSB11 ver 2.6 running on my FC4 installation, i downloaded the kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm from the fedora website

i did however down the binaries iso's so i am assuming my problem lies there

i need the kernel source so i can build these drivers and finally make the transition to a fully linux system

Your don't need the .src.rpm (it isn't what you think - it's the patch set for Fedora). You need the kernel-devel package. See the release notes for details.

Well i'm not sure if this will help as i do not know much about linux, but when i installed Fedora Core 4 this morning (for the second or third time, kept breaking it) i installed all the devolopment packages, including the KDE and the Gnome ones, and so far i have been able install the nvidia drivers and the eagle-usb drivers so i think its installed.
