There are both kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages. I am not sure 
what each does. I presume the smaller (headers, 735K) is needed to 
compile other programs, while the larger (devel 22M) is needed if you 
are building modules etc. which hook directly to the kernel.

I just install both by name.
