Sorry. Fedora Core 2 is/was based on the 2.6 kernel series, somebody at
sometime created this custom kernel. From the naming of it it sounds like
this someone may have used an RHEL-3 kernel source.

Check the system this kernel is installed on (if possible), it may still be
available have a look in the /usr/src/redhat directory structure.

Which? Out-of-box, or one of the updates?

kernel-source-2.6.5-1.358.i386.rpm May 9 2004
kernel-sourcecode-2.6.10-1.770_FC2.noarch.rpm 03-Mar-2005
kernel-sourcecode-2.6.10-1.771_FC2.noarch.rpm 28-Mar-2005
kernel-sourcecode-2.6.10-2.3.legacy_FC2.noarch.rpm 20-Feb-2006


That's not Fedora - that's one of the Red Hat Enterprise versions. Something
_COMPLETELY_ different. That should be on ftp.redhat.com somewhere. 2.4.20
was used in updates of RH7.2, 7.3, 8.0, and out-of-box through updates of 9.

You and your cow-orker do realize that FC2 has been unsupported for about
six months now.
