downloading kernel-source

I am trying to install my nvidiagraphics card but apparently I need kernel 2.2.15-4mdk. Where is the best place to download this from(I would prefer if it is an rpm). Is this the most recent version or is there a more recent version you recommend?

You should be able to install the kernel source using your distro's package management system. Just do a search using their tool.
