The Novell process to access the sources is very stupid! I'll try TO
describe it:

At first, you need a novell account to download the source. After you
create a novell account, click "Download" (
http://www.novell.com/products/vmdriverpack/), login and then you'll be
able to download the ISO image.
In the ISO image, you can find some rpm packages in the directory
suse/noarch/. Decompress suse/noarch/vmdp- xen-rhel5-1.1.3-6.noarch.rpm
package, (I do it using the alien then dpkg --extract).
In the opt/novell/vm-driver-pack/xen package directory, two ISO images
can be found:
-  vmdp-xen-RHEL5-32bit-drivers.iso
-  vmdp-xen-RHEL5-64bit-drivers.iso
Mount the iso's file and extract kmod-vmdp-rhel5-64-3.0.4-1.src.rpm
source package. Inside this package you can find the sources.

    Sorry, but I cannot find these drivers behind these links. Do you have a
    more concrete hint?
