I don't have any kernel-sources in my repositories. This is my sources.list:

# Fedora Core 3
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 core updates
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/3/i386 tupdates

# Fedoralegacy updates
#rpm http://download.fedoralegacy.org/apt fedora/3/i386 updates
#rpm-src http://download.fedoralegacy.org/apt fedora/3/i386 updates

# ATrpms for Fedora Core 3
# Possible sections: at-stable, at-good, at-testing, at-bleeding
rpm http://apt.atrpms.net fedora/3/en/i386 at-stable
rpm-src http://apt.atrpms.net fedora/3/en/i386 at-stable

### Dag RPM Repository for Fedora Core
rpm http://apt.sw.be fedora/3/en/i386 dag

rpm http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/ redhat/en/i386/fc3 newrpms
rpm-src http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/ redhat/en/i386/fc3 newrpms

rpm http://apt.sw.be dries/fedora/fc3/i386 dries
rpm-src http://apt.sw.be dries/fedora/fc3/i386 dries

What's am I doing wrong? There are several kernels in my repositories, but no sources, even after I uncommented the rpm-src-repositories?

According the "kernel" section of the Release Notes (http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc3/x86/)

In order to eliminate the redundancy inherent in providing a separate package for the kernel source code when that source code already exists in the kernel's .src.rpm file, Fedora Core 3 no longer includes the kernel-source package. Users that require access to the kernel sources can find them in the kernel .src.rpm file. To create an exploded source tree from this file, perform the following steps...
(Detailed steps are included in the Notes.)

I checked the Fedora update site http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/3/i386/SRPMS.updates/. There is the recently updated kernel source file: kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.src.rpm.

Well, I guess the sources are not visible through synaptic. I hope someone can explain how to get source rpms through apt/synaptic. Meanwhile, you can get it directly/manually by visiting the above URL.
