The kernel-sourcecode pkg is deprecated upstream and dropped down the
line, there will be no kernel-sourcecode pkg in CentOS4 anymore.
Refer back to my previous answer for how to do the job the 'right way',
there is more info in the upstream provided Release Notes hosted at (
including an elaborate explaination on how to get the source tree from a
src.rpm ) :
here is a tiny bit from that doc' that explains the situation:
" In order to eliminate the redundancy inherent in providing a separate
package for the kernel source code when that source code already exists
in the kernel's .src.rpm file, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 no longer
includes the kernel-source package. Users that require access to the
kernel sources can find them in the kernel .src.rpm file."
