I have installed Mandrake 10 with the LBS(?) with kernel 2.4
I am trying to install my wireless card, and it keeps asking for the location of hte kernel sources. I cant find them, /usr/src/linux doesnt work. any ideas?

Install the RPM for Kernel Sources

Go in Mandrake Control Center / Packages Section / Add packages/programs

Due a search for Kernel Source for 2.4.x Kernels

After that, install it!
