Abit NF7-S Audio drivers

Ok, so I downloaded the nVidia nForce drivers for the motherboard (an nForce 2 chipset), and when I tried to install the package (after a few retries before installing binutils) It gives me this error message in the installation:

ERROR: Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

I am running Debian Sarge and would like to know how I can fix this problem. I just need to get the audio working. I had audio before, but could not play more than one sound at a time, so I tried finding new drivers (OSS, and ALSA-OSS), but now I have no sound at all. Any help would be very much appreciated.
