Note that you will need the same sources that your kernel and world are built from. Therefore, you want to add the sources from the install CD. Using csup will get you the latest sources. This means that you would need to update your system as well - Not a big problem - cd /usr/src; make buildworld buildkernel installkernel installworld; reboot should take care of it, although such a shorthand update can cause problems at times.
Getting the sources from your cd: well using sysinstall is probably the easiest. Run sysinstall, then choose a post-install configuration, find the way to add packages, then install the system and kernel sources.
The only dumb question is a question not asked.
