where did YUM install my kernel-source?

i just used YUM to update my kernel, everything worked fine and i even got booted into the new kernel (2.6.8) but I can't find the kernel source code in my /usr/src directory, it only has the old souce 2.6.5, which was installed with the FC2 CD. I typed "yum instal kernel-source" and it tells me i have the latest version... but where did it install this source? i want to reconfigure this auto-updated kernel.
