How to unzip all the src files in linux src folder?

Hi All,
I had installed src-rpm of redhat linux distribution. When i went inside the directory, i saw every file was having the extension .gz. How to iteratively unzip all the files. I want to browse through the code and learn linux. I have a solid 3+ years of experience in Windows environment. I am currently working on a project, where even the editor is Vi. As i am working, i have become a a fan of TUX and obviously linux.

Can someone let me know the way to unzip this thing?

Thanks & Regards,
