can't install linux-headers-2.6.21
I have Linux debian etch with kernel 2.6.21-2-686 SMP, when i tried to install ndiswrapper (for my wireless network ( it says that it can't find linux-header-2.6.21-2-686 , ,I don't have connection on my Debian, so i downloaeded a linux-header and installed it, but it was not the right one , I looked in the Debian packages web site and tried some other headers that have the same version number but no one was good
so can you please give me a link to this header because I can't find it myself

I tried these :

one of the error messages is :

linux-headers-2.6.21-2-686 depends on linux-headers-2.6.21-2 (= 2.6.21-6~bpo.1)
You need to get linux-headers-2.6.21-2 too.

but I didn't find them , i've tried all the version 2.6.21 , but no one is good, and i don't know where is it !!!!!!

i treid also this one (which seems to be the exact wanted version), but it didn't work

perhaps the problem is that the headers are nor installed in the googd place, because I have treid all the headers that I know , but no one was good
