kernel compiling


recently, I've tried to install wlan(prism2_usb) drivers on my computer, but it seems in order to do it I need to recompile my kernel, is't true?

if so, how to do it? I've installed my mandrake 10.1 with kernel 2.6 automatically, and I think I don't have a source code of kernel, where can I find it?

thanx for help
