Hi , I would like use kernel source for both adding drivers are well as configuring kernel.( porting for small embedded system)
Here i see one more problem ,  i have followed your below mentioned
steps.

kernel sources got updated, but when i try a command like rpm -qa | grep
kernel-source " nothing has been returned .

i have a doubt whether kernel sources were really downloaded or not .
...

This last step should have resulted in a file
kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.src.rpm in the directory you ran it from. That
package contains the full kernel sources.

It's a source RPM package, so installing it just unpacks it into your
RPM build environment and will not affect the RPM database at all, hence
it won't show in "rpm -qa".

A guide to tweaking the kernel package can be found at:
http://oak.cats.ohiou.edu/~hobbsk/kernel-compilation-tutorial-en/steps.html
Actually that tutorial doesn't work any more; an extra step (editing the
.config file) is needed before rebuilding the RPM.
You could try the following guide instead:
