RH9 2.4.20-31.9 kernel source missing

After getting my Broadcom 4401 NIC working on RH9 I had to upgrade the kernel to 2.4.20-31.9 (applying both kernel-2.4.20-31.9.i686.rpm and kernel-2.4.20-31.9.src.rpm) to get my Netgear MA401 wireless card working. However, this broke the Broadcom and I need to rebuild the drivers to get it working again (yes I do need both).

The Makefile is looking for the source tree at /usr/src/linux, but /usr/src has:

debug (dir)
linux-2.4 (link to linux-2.4.20-8)
linux-2.4.20 (dir -- I copied this from
linux-2.4.20-8 (dir -- the original kernel source from the install)
redhat (dir)

I had to clean-install everything this time becuz I fubar'ed my last one. How do I fix this without making a mess?

Hey Hosehead, try looking at where they provide a wide selection of rpm'ed kernel sources.

It's in the kernel-source package. Not the src.rpm! Various commands install this package, e.g. up2date kernel-source or yum -y install kernel-source if you've fetched extras for Red Hat Linux at
