core 3, where the hell is the kernel source rpm ?


I installed Fedora core3 from the Linux-Format magazine enclosed DVD.
Then I installed the ATI radeon drivers using yum, but it doesnt work. So I want to install the ATI driver ( released yesterday )downloded from the ATI website. The only problem is that I need the kernel source RPM. It's not on the DVD and as I can remember it's not even an install option , while with Core1 and 2 you could install the kernel source from the developments packages .
Could someone please be kind enough to give me a link where I could download that rpm ?.
How can they call it "open source" when the kernel source is so hard to locate ?
I have the core3 default kernel 2.6.9-1.667

Thanks for the link. I didn,t know a bout the homelinux.org website. It looks like an interesting site.
Obviously, installing the kernel-source rpm is a litlle more complicate than it used to be
