Do you have the other disks, the isos without SRPMS in the file name? If you haven't installed Fedora already, those are the ones to use. SRPMS are the source code to recompile. You probably don't want to, only if you need some customizations.

Anybody know how to recompile the entire distro?

You use rpmbuild --rebuild <srpm filename> to rebuild SRPM files.
