Trying to install local repository.

Since I have an ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 motherboard, I do not have a working
network LAN module, so I am required to build the LAN module, given the
source-code and it requires the Kernel source as well.

So what I had to do was to download the base core files first and set up a
base-core local repository from which I was able to install all of the development

The next step I needed was to also install the core-source files onto my local
repository as well but for some reason, I was not able to use it because I probably
do not have the yum source repo file correctly setup since it does not find the
*.src.rpm source tags?

I have already used the createrepo command for the core-base local repository and
it worked, but it does not work the same way in setting up the core-source files?

I was able to do the following as a non-root user:
1) rpmdev-setuptree

but I was not able to do:
2) yumdownloader --source kernel

because it cannot find the kernel source file.  I found out the hard way that the source.repo
file is finding *.rpm but not the *.src.rpm file for which I need?

Can someone kindly point me in the right direction in defining my local yum source repo
file so that it correctly finds the *.src.rpm files?
