It shoukd be in /usr/src if it's installed. If it's not installed, there should be a kernel-source package on your distro's install media.

Just for further pointless explanation, it'll
be under /usr/src/linux-*
There should be a symlink to it by the name of
/usr/src/linux
If you're using Slackware and you decided not
to install the source, it should be in
/mnt/cdrom/slackware/k/

I seem to recall that you'd want to make sure that you're using a later version that 2.4.20 because there was previously a big announcement about some security exploits in versions 2.4.24 and earlier.

From memory, it said about upgrading to 2.5.25 (the knoppix hard drive install I'm running at the moment, provides a 2.6 series kernel and 2.4.27 for a 2.4 series kernel).

Maybe that helps some?

regards

John
