That's right - not quite certain myself but I think the FC4 kernel-devel 
package only includes the "Makefile" and "Kconfig" files for the kernel 
tree. The actual source (.c and .h files) are contained in 
"kernel-2.6....FC4.src.rpm". Section 6.2.2 of the FC4 Release Notes give 
details on this; see 

I followed the steps in up to the end of step 3, and then copied the 
contents of /usr/src/linux to /usr/src/kernels/<kernel-version>, answering 
'no' to all the "overwirte existing file?" prompts.

Now the fact that your modules compiled at all means it could find the 
required header files, but it's possible that it found either:
  1. The header files for a different kernel version; or
  2. The vanilla kernel files instead of the FC4-patched kernel files.

So I'd reccomend following the steps in the FC4 release notes (using 
rpmbuild) as I'm certain this ensures that the kernel source produced is the 
FC4 patched kernel (which your are running) as opposed to the vanilla kernel 
(which you arent!).

I hope this helps, let us know how you get on...
