Can I use RPM to download and update all core source files?

I installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 without any of the source files. Now I need the source files to resolve a problem installing my new ATI All-in-wonder Pro 9000, and I'm wondering if there's an easy way to download them via RPM. What would the command look like in my console?

The easiest way is to go to mandrake's ftp site and download the kernel-source package for your kernel version. Goto and pick you nearest mirror, then look for the appropriate file. It's about 40MB though.
