Kernel Source Help

Here's the situation in suse9.0:
Been trying to load driver for my linksys wmp54g wireess; needed to load kernel source 2.4.21-144-athlon to /lib/modules, which I did via yast; farkled around with ndiswrapper and Driverloader and did a Suse update and wound up with kernel 2.4.21-192-athlon installed; did another update and now have kernel 2.4.21-199-athlon installed. Have been cleaning up my farkling-around and I deleted kernel source 2.4.21-144-athlon. At the present I have kernel 2.4.21-199-athlon in /lib/modules and no kernel source. When I go to yast, yast tells me that available kernel source is older than installed kernel.
When I go to Suse and try to get source, yast wants to install it.
Problem is that I want to install an app that needs a kernel 2.4.21-199-athlon source in /lib/modules. How do I make this happen?
I have googled for this info and it gets way over my head real fast!
