Welcome to the forums!

The best way to install this package is from your distribution's (distro's) repositories, using the package manager.

In Linux we don't need to "find" packages because we already have everything we need.

Which distribution are you using?

I am using:
2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Sat Jan 10 18:29:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
this is a stripped down and highly customized system, that's why it's so old.

when i use apt-cache search i can't find the headers

Debian Etch reached its "end of life" in Feb. 2010. I'm sorry I cannot be of further assistance with this obsolete release.

Other chose is downloading the kernel's source tarball from kernel.org and do a "make headers_install".
check make help for default install path and how to change it if you want to.
Warning: Kernel headers must be same version with the version glibc compiled with.

2.6.26.x is Debian Lenny, it seems.
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/lin...s-2.6.26-2-686
And : "Similar packages:" will bring you to 2.6.26-1-686 :
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/lin...s-2.6.26-1-486
> > http://security.debian.org/debian-se...enny2_i386.deb
