where is linux source build directory/kernel source tree?

does anyone know where i could find the linux source build directory for mdk10? i was trying to install the linuxant drivers by compiling it. but i received this series of messages.

where can i find this build directory/tree or how can i install it?


Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt04061800full

If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

No pre-built modules for: Mandrake-10.0 linux-2.6.3-7mdk i686

Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)
Please ensure that the kernel-headers or kernel-source package is installed.

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
[/usr/src/linux] hsfconfig

WARNING: missing file hsfconfig/include/linux/autoconf.h
The cause of this is usually a missing or unconfigured
kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).

The package you need to install is kernel-source-2.6.3-7mdk

Here is a link to it if you can't find it.
