Have been a number USB issues in bugzilla.  Create an account if you
haven't yet, search for your problem on 
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ and/or post more details.

Update sources to use mirrors as others suggested, (see
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html and pick one or more near
you to try), and also try out yum (also after updating /etc/yum.conf to
use mirrors).  Search the archive for some alternate repository
suggestions and sample sources files. (Hint: "yum upgrade")

Think that was covered in another response, but also check out
http://acd.ucar.edu/~fredrick/linux/fedorakernel/ for general
instructions.  (Hint: "yum install kernel-source")

I use a script with some reminders:

[root radar0 linux-2.4]# cat ~/bin/make_linux
# Kernel build steps:
#   1. Install the sources
#   2. cd <install directory> (e.g. /usr/src/linux-2.4
#   3. make mrproper && make oldconfig
#   3a. (optional - copy .config file from configs directory or old kernel)
#   4. make xconfig (or menuconfig if not in X)
#   5. make dep
#   6. make
#   7. make bzImage
#   8. make modules
#   9. make modules_install
#  10. make install
#  11. configure LILO or GRUB. ("make install" will do this for you)
# This script implements steps 5-10

# Note: adjust "-j n" for performance on compilation - runs parallel jobs
# -j 4 is a good starting place for single processor

(make -j 6 dep && make -j 6 && make -j 6 bzImage && make -j 6 modules && \
 make modules_install && make install) >& /tmp/MakeKernel.log

# check log file for errors when done, repeat as required, or reboot to test


Good luck, and welcome to Fedora,
