I've had no experience with ndiswrapper. The externally accessible
headers for the *rdt kernels should be in:
  /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
Maybe there is something in the source you are trying to build that can
be pointed to that location. 

Some external modules need more "internals" of the kernel, I think, for
that you need to download the source rpm and follow the instructions in
the fc3 release notes to build a "ready to build" kernel source tree
that exactly corresponds to the kernel you are running.
