You might not actually need the source code at all. Most properly-
written drivers can be built on FC3 using the build data supplied with
the kernel RPM at: /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
Otherwise you can follow the guide in the release notes (open
search for "kernel source code"). You can find the version of the kernel
you are running using the command "uname -r".
