    First of all, you'll have to figure the proper kernel version you use: uname -r
    After that you have to choose header for the same version. If you use command urpmi, you just have to type the word "kernel-source" after it, and it will look after a package with a similar name, and you can select from a list. Still it's easier to use rpmdrake instead. Its easier to select with this visual tool.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
