Not when I tried to do it, and again now.  Apparently when they say removed
they mean removed, as their suggested "up2date --get-source kernel" command
fails with a 404 not found error on a header.info page.  I found the kernel
source at
<http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/3/SRPMS/> .

But as Alexander Dalloz says, you don't need it for what you're doing
(AFAIK, which is less than he knows).
