Where is SuSE's linux kernel source dir?

I am trying to install the linux wireless pci card driver. When I type ./Configure it asks for the "Linux kernel source directory [/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99-default]"
When I press enter it then says "Configuration failed Linux source tree is incomplete or missing!
I have searched high and low for the location of SuSE's kernel source directory and I cannot find it.

Please help. I'm a newb. I got SuSE installed and working with dialup I've gotten somewhere but am stuck now.

If you provide an answer, please be precise (if you can) about how to find/install the kernel so I can get this baby installed and on my wireless network. thanks!!

it is probably on your install cds. does suse have a add/remove programs section? If it does check there. When I installed redhat using the basic install the kernel source was not included. I was able to install it using the method I gave you.
