Redhat 9 kernel source code local?

I am trying to install a Cisco VPN client install and the instruction tell me to locate the "Directory containing linux kernel source code [/usr/src/linux]". No such file or folder exists on my system. Under the /usr/src direcotory I have two choices, redhat and debug. If I try to point the install to /usr/src/redhat, it fails.

Where am I to find these files it needs?
