Question Kernel Source Update

I am trying to install a wusb11 version 2.6 network card, but I read on a forum that: "I need to first make sure you have the development packages and the kernel source installed for your distribution. To test this, from a root console type: gcc -v, you should get version info back, not a "command not found". Next, type: ls -l /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build, that's a lowercase L, the character surrounding the uname -r is the one on the same key as the "~" which is left of the 1 key. build is a symlink to a directory under /usr/src/, which needs to exist and be populated."

When I tried to check the kernel source, it gave me an invalid directory message.

Any help with what I need to do to either update my kernel or a way to install the driver without that step.

Sorry if this post makes little sense.
