In a console, type "uname -r" (without quotes) to check the exact version of your kernel.
Then either download the kernel sources from kernel.org or install the source package from the FC3 installation CD-ROM (most distro release the source code in rpms for Redhat(+Fedora Core) or Mandrake).

Feel free to check the nvidia README file where this information is already available.

you don't need a kernel-source package in FC3 (it don't even exists ) the kernel headers are included in the kernel. yust continue the installation the installer will build a kernel interface for you.
