Where is the kernel source in 10.0 ?

I have a newbie question about Mandrake 10.0. I just installed Mandrake 10.0 and it works perfectly. During the install I installed EVERYTHING except the servers (FTP,SQL etc.). But when I go to /usr/src , I can't find the kernel source so that I may tweak it to my particular system. Did I miss something during the install ? Also, I did a Locate .config to try and find the kernel .config file but that came up empty as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

u can get it from

or better just go to easy urpmi to setup ur urpmi so that u can install it from the software manager in the control center and alot more of softwares

and when u install the kernel-source you will find the .config in /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk

Find out what kernel you are running,
[fancy@tinwhistle fancy]$ su -
[root@tinwhistle root]# uname -r
Then, if you have your software manager (urpmi) configured correctly:
Sat Jun 12 10:55 PM root@uilleann ~ # urpmi kernel-source
Pick the correct one from the returned possibilities and
Sat Jun 12 10:55 PM root@uilleann ~ # urpmi kernel-source-<your running kernel version number>
# Mandrake links
Mandrake home page
Mandrake Users website
Software management configuration: Easy urpmi config for Mandrake
Software management: urpmi mini-HOWTO
Software management: All You Ever Wanted to Know About Urpmi But Never Dared Asking Before
You didn't install the developmental packages? As root, command:
urpmi gcc
An Introduction to the Midnight Commander. You can install it by commanding:
urpmi mc
Midnight Commander home page

Thanks very much. This is my first 10.0 official install. The last install of mandrake I did was 8.x and it put in the source tree automatically. I wounder why they changed it. I will also assume that the .config from that web site is the same one used to install my kernel.
