problem in installing ndiswrapper on fedora7...How to install the source code??

I am using fedora7 . got the netgear wg311v3 wifi card. Need to install it.

The install instructions of ndiswrapper say that I need to have a link to the kernel source code.
(ls /lib/modules/'uname -r'/build should have atleast include directory and a '.config' file)
I can't figure out where is the kernel source code?(is it there in the install DVD...if on DVD then which file and where? or do i have to get it from Internet or is it already installed somewhere????)(I am confused)

Also how do I make the link to the source?

my WiFi card is netgear wg311 v3 . Is there any other mehod to get it detected in fedora7?

The questions may be stupid....Pardon me for that...I am a complete newbie...

Install the freshrpms-release package, as root type;

rpm -ivh

When done still as root type; yum install dkms-ndiswrapper

This will install the kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages if necessary.

If you want the source code then you can get it from Fedora;
