any redhat mirror? 

search the appropriate rpm with rpmfind
(http://www.rpmfind.net/) it should be something
like kernel-2.4.18-3.src.rpm for the actual SRPM
which produces (if rebuilt) kernel-2.4.18-3.i386.rpm
(the kernel rpm) and kernel-source-2.4.18-3.i386.rpm
(the kernel sources, already patched)

best,
Herbert
