Description of problem:
The first installation RedHat 8.0 i386 installs the linux.2-4.18-14 source code 
directory in the /usr/src directory.  If I re-install from the ground up, after 
wiping the harddrive, the linux.2-4.18-14 source code is no longer installed 
in /usr/src.  This makes installing the Cisco VPN 3.7 software and other build 
software futile.  

SONY VAIO, PIII-450, Model #PCG-F370

All else works incredibly well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install once.
2.Wipe harddrive.
3.Re-install fresh.

Additional info:

If the source code for the kernel is elswhere, then there is no documentation 
describing this behavior

you need to make sure you install the kernel-source RPM
