(1) this is the rpm that installs the kernel.

(2) this installs the same kernel , but instead of it already being in a compiled
form, it is in source form.  the kernel is compiled and then installed.

(3) this is the source code by itself.  if you had already installed
rpm (1), then needed the source, you could use this rpm.
