Depends on what the kernel module wants and how well it meshes with
2.6.x. Ideally you don't need any other package than the kernel itself,
headers are in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/

Some kernel modules may want a full kernel source tree, for those you
can build one from the .src.rpm for the kernel. For details on doing
that see the Fedora Core 3 release notes. You will need the .src.rpm
package for the kernel you are using. All .src.rpm packages for Planet
CCRMA are at:
