Hi, the kernel source is located on CD3, you can use rpm drake to install it for you. It will be named kernel-source2.6.3 or somesuch. You can click on the star menu then go system->configuration->packaging->install software. enter the root password, then click on the alpha listing the scroll down until you see the kernel-source file click on that one and let rpmdrake install it for you. While you're at it you can have look and see if there are any other files you want it to install at the same time.
