I love answering my own questions....
It would appear that redhat have, in their wisdom, changed the way these
are delivered to ensure that it's harder than it needs to be.
The kernel-devel-xyz package needs to be installed, but this install the
source to /usr/src/kernels/2.6.xyz.
Hooray for changing what was fine in the first place...

Subject: [ILUG] Fedora Core 5 Kernel Source Package
I have just installed FC5 x86_64 on my new laptop, but cannot find the
kernel source package anywhere on the DVD-ROM.
I was under the impression that it was usually called
kernel-source-2.6.x-y.z.FC5......, but can't find anything matching
The reason I need it is to get ndiswrapper compiled and installed so I
can get my wireless card working, so network connectivity is currently
