Installing kernel source on 9.2


I just installed 9.2 on my machine and now I am looking to set up my modem. It happens to be a winmodem but I do have drivers for it that supposedly work. So now I need the kernel source code. I looked on the CDs for the kernel source but I could not find it. I ran "uname -a" and found my kernel version is "2.4.22-10mdk". Can I use the kernel source from kernel.org called "2.4.22"? Will they work the same?

No,

Btw, you need to update your kernel with security patches.
