Location of kernel source

Hi folks,

I am using Mandrake 10 and trying to install TUN TAP for tunneling.

When I do the ./configure, I get:

configure: error: Linux kernel source not found in /usr/src/linux
configure: error: ./configure failed for linux

So I know that it can't find the source, but do I redirect it to somewhere else? Where would that be?

When I type that I get:

Linux version 2.6.3-7mdk ( (gcc version 3.3.2 (Mandrake Linux 10.0 3.3.2-6mdk)) #1 Wed Mar 17 15:56:42 CET 2004

Does that mean I did?

How do I get TUN TAP to install?
