The kernel header files can be downloaded from www.kernel.org, or (probably the safer thing to do) you ought to be able to find them on your Slackware installation discs. To find out which version you need, open up a terminal and type:

uname -r

If you have the bandwidth for it, just download the entire kernel source (which includes the headers). Usually it's around 30MB. Follow the instructions they give for extracting it - usually it'll go in /usr/src/linux, or /usr/src/linux-2.4.22.
