There are a couple of ways to check and see if they are loaded. You can do a

cd /usr/src

and check for the linux-2.4 directory, or you can

rpm -qa | grep kernel

If they are loaded, you will get something like this:


If you do not have the sources loaded, I believe you will see in the RPM's on the CD's (CD1 I think) kernel-source-2.4.18-14.rpm

You can copy that file to /tmp and then do (as root)

rmp -ivh kernel-source-2.4.18-14.rpm
