my /usr/src/linux folder is empty

I'm trying to install my sound card, and for that I need some files from /usr/src/linux directory. I have RH 8.

Install the kernel source package that is on one of your Read Hat CD's.

This normally indicates that u don't have the source installed on the system. If u still have your original kernel from when u did your first install then mount the cd find the rpm that says kernel-source-version. Once that file has been located then type cmd rpm -Uvh package. If the kernel is not the original from the first install then download the same version
