OK, I've tried the kernel-devel package, and it seems that it probably 
has the correct files; however,
# yum install kernel-devel
only installs the source for the 2.6.18-1 FC kernel, as supposed to the 
2.6.16-1 planetCCRMA kernel. As a result, I am unable to build with the 
CCRMA kernel. How can I get the kernel-devel package for the CCRMA 
2.6.16-1.2080.rrt.rhfc5.ccrma kernel?

I've now switched to the rrt kernel, which appears to work fine in the 
hope that installing the source rpm's would solve the problem, however,
# rpm -i kernel-2.6.16-1.2080.16.rrt.src.rpm
gives error: cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

All help appreciated as to how I can get the headers/sources needed to 
compile the wireless card driver.
