kernel-devel packaging error?

I installed the FC5 system on an Athlon i686 dual processor system and 
things seem to be fine.  I installed kernel-devel (2054) to try a vmware 
installation.  When kermel-devel installs, it has 
/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054-FC5smp/build pointing to 
../../../usr/src/kernels/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5-smp-i686, but /usr/src/kernels 
contains 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5-i686 instead of 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5-smp-i686. barfs, saying the includes for the installed kernel can not 
be found.  I do not see this error on an x86_64 system.  Only on an x86 smp 
system.  What are the correct links?  Any idea on what I should do to get 
vmware configured?  Is the kernel-devel rpm just hosed?
