Missing kernel build files (2.6.11-mdksmp) - need them for ndiswrapper

I am running Mandriva 2005 LE and the build folder is not in lib\modules\2.6.11-6mdksmp\ directory. I need them to be there so i can proceed with installing ndiswrapper so that i can use my cursed bcm4306 wifi chipset. Does this have something to do with the kernel source or anything. I have the install cds but i don't know if that helps any. Let me know where to get the files so i can put them there. Thanks.

your supposed to have a link to the kernel in that directory called 'build'. I think my actual kernel is in /usr/src/kernel/'uname -r'/.

i figured out where the source code rpms were. I installed them and everything went fine. i was suprised that the wifi utility in mandriva 2005 le works like a charm after i got the sriver working.
