    Run "rpm -q kernel-source" or "rpm -qa | grep kernel".  Either one should tell you whether or not it's installed.  To install it, download the kernel-source for your architecture from .  Run "rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-1.667.src.rpm"  Next run "rpmbuild -bp --target=noarch  /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec"

    You can check this site for more info on installing the source:
