You can find out what kernel you are currently using with the uname command:
If you have old kernel headers then you may also have old kernels. Check your kernel packages for unneeded kernels.
If you want more detail then tell us what distribution and what package manager you are using.
Yes, much more detail would be appericated as I don't want to "break" anything in the system.....again.
uname -r returns: 2.6.27-11-generic as the kernel that I'm running, would I still need Linux-headers-2.6.27-11 then?
I am running Ubuntu 8.10 with a graphical add/remove program that was installed as part of the system, I assume that it's a graphical front-end for the Synaptic Package Manager.
Thanks in advance.
