Question How do I install Kernel source - SuSE 9.0?


As a relative newbie to Linux I'd like to know how I install the kernel source for my system which is running SuSE 9.0 Professional. I need to do this in order to support the installation of
Opensound drivers.
Thank you.

tar -xvjpf filename.tar.bz2 to uncompress, and then link it
ln -s linux-2.6.8-r* linux
