Just had a quick look on one of my systems, check to see if you have kernel-devel and kernel-headers;
   $ rpm -qa | grep kernel
   kernel-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5
   kernel-headers-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5
   kernel-devel-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5

If there are not there then use yum to install;
   $ yum install kernel-devel

etc.
