rhe kernel Source RPMS

i've got the rhe kernel source codes.. but they all are in rpm formats.. is this supposed to be like this? or do i have to decompress all of them inorder to configure and build a new kernel?

i believe there's a bout 277 rpm files in just one cd and there's two more i haven't checked.

another question... how would i find out how much space is left on my hard drive?
