Fedora 9 Kernel Source for both x86_64 and i[3|4|5|6]86 versions...

Hi all - I am a Linux newbie.

I want to install both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Fedora 9. While I know where to get the ISO CD images for both, I need help getting the kernel source for both versions.

I went here:
and I think this is the right place.

What do I do after getting the source? How do I compile the kernel - and what do I need to do it - for both versions?

A step-by-step process would help, or a pointer to somewhere that has such a guide.

Why do you want to compile it?

You will find the sources in almost all mirrors.

For documentation, see the Fedora wiki
