kernel-source package

Just a quick question:

Where can i get the kernel-source package for damn small linux 0.8.4?

In the FAQ it say i need the Knoppix 3.4 kernel-source package but that doesn't really help me much

Any help would be fantastic

BTW i only need this to install the NVIDIA drivers, if anyone has a precompiled thingy for this distro hook me up!

:: Just a side note ::

I tried to use apt get for the source but no go
an - apt-cache search kernel-source - returns source package only up to 2.4.19. whereas a:
uname -r returns: 2.4.26. so now im really confused

:: EDIT ::

OK i finally got the correct source package installed and by using the --kernel-source-path switch in the NVIDIA installer it now works, however it now has two new errors:

1) It says that my version of GCC is different from the one that the source was compiled with, 2.95 and the new one is 3.3. Will this matter?

2)if i continue it then goes on about installing the correct source for my distribution. I use damn small linux - which uname -r reports as 2.4.26 and i downloaded the debian 2.4.26 package using apt-get (dsl is based on debian i thought this would be fine!!!)

any ideas?
