Actually, why not

cp -a /#ftp:ftp.bz2.us.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.3/linux-2.3.x.tar.bz2#utar /usr/src

so you don't have to untar it manually? I'd do it if I have internet
connectivity just now.

This is on almost-unmodified 2.3.6 but it works equally well with
vanilla 2.2.10. Take a look at podfuk,
http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~pavel/podfuk/podfuk.html.

So yes, podfuk actually works.
