In the directory /lib/modules/[kernel]/net

I'm not talking abut the source RPM but the .tar.gz that has just
the source and a Makefile.

I ftped them from mirrors.usc.edu.  They are 3.0r1.  This time I
instaled from CD1 the supposed "vanilla" one.  For some reason it
installed the 2.2.20-idepci kernel.

Thanks for the tar help.  I thought that if you gave a filename as an
arguement the "f" would be assumed.

Anyway I tried to make the module and it turns out that the kernel
source wasn't installed.  Is it on the CDs?  If so where and how do I
install it?
