Smile Linux Kernel Source Path

Im currently using RH 7.1. Im trying to configure a vpn client. It asks me for my linux kernel source path. Usually that would be /usr/src/linux. The problem is: that path does not exist on my computer. Any ideas? /usr/src/redhat exists, but no kernel source resides there or an any subdirectory thereof.

Have you searched the whole /usr/src directory? The /usr/src/linux directory is usually just a symlink to the actual directory which should be something like /usr/src/linux-2.4.7-10 or so forth, depending on the kernel your red hat is using. If it's not there, find the install CD with the kernel source and install it.
