Trying to find and install kernel-source from cd

I am trying to install and run Mandrake 10.0 with kernel 2.6.3-4mdk. I am having problems with my nvidia geforce fx go 5200. I have been following a thread that says I need to install my kernel source. I have cds that were burned from a download.

My question is this: how do I find the kernel-source on my cd and when I do how do I install it?
