[CentOS] You do not appear to have the sources for the 2.6.18-128.1.1.el5.028stab062.3PAE kernel installed.

There are very active female folks as well in CentOS kernel 
space ...

To follow on what John has said -- the CentOS project does not 
build a kernel emitting the uname containing: 
2.6.18-128.1.1.el5.028stab062.3PAE , nor HAVE the patched 
sources for "2.6.18-128.1.1.el5.028stab062.3PAE"

Only the person providing it to you has it (or, at least 
SHOULD have access to them) -- as the kernel is GPL(2) 
licensed, they are perhaps under an obligation to make it 
available to you
