None Wrong kernel source package

Red Hat has a kernel SRPM file (kernel-2.2.14-5.0.src.rpm) that will
install stuff in a subdirectory of /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES, but this
is not what you want.  The SRPM files are used if you want to create a
kernel RPM for distribution, which is not what you want to do.  The
kernel source is all in there, but it is in an odd place and you would
need to do additional steps to get it extracted in a useful form.

There are also kernel sources in a regular RPM that installs them in
/usr/src/linux.  This RPM is kernel-source-2.2.14-5.0.i386.rpm and is
the one you want.
