AMD Source for SuSE 8.2 ???

I've been reading carefully though prior questions about installing NVIDIA drivers with an AMD processor, using YaST and the source files for the kernel. I think I understand what needs to be done, as far as geting the kernel source, setting up the link, etc.

However ...

My kernal is:

2.4.20-96 (k_althon)

The kernal-source files that are available online via YaST/YOU are listed as 2.4.20.SuSE-86

-- and they are 'greyed out' with the message 'do not install'. I can't seem to go fetch them from the server.

Are these the right source files? Why does YaST not want me to install them? Is there another way to download the source files for k_althon ??

I'm stumped. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Download it from here:

Or search for kernel-source here:

If you have apt for SuSE:
apt-get install kernel-source
