Help! How to get Kernel source 2.6.5-7.104


I have Suse9.1 box and I just made a stupid mistake-- I deleted the kernel source 2.6.5-7.104 in /usr/src

I thought it would be easy to go to yast and download it again, but the fact is, the available version is just 2.6.4-52. And if I try to delete the current kernel and downgrade or delete the current source in yast, there would be just an error.

Really upset I need the source to build kernel modules, and now, all I can do is to cry about my lost source

Really appreciate any help!!

Try the Linux Kernel archives on the web. They should have it.
