Where do I find the kernel source trees for Mandrake 10?

I'm completely new to Linux, so bear with me.

I have an nVidia GeForce 2 MX/400 (sucks, I know) that I downloaded Linux drivers for. However, when I attempt to install the drivers, I get this error that tells me to install the 'kernel source trees'. Where do I find these, and how do I install them?

try as root:

urpmi kernel-sources

Or if you have KDE/GNOME :

Mandrake Control Center, Packages, Install new packages, due a search for kernel sources and install it
