Question Source tree

I got my Slackware 9.0 install CD from AlmostFreeLinux and I've had no problems with it. I'd like to upgrade to the new 2.4.21 kernel with the patch, but I can't find my Linux source tree. It's not in /usr/src. Does anyone know where else it could be, or if there's a possibility that I just don't have one? Thanks a lot for any help.

The kernel source doesnt come on the slackware installation disc. Its in the /k directory of a Slackware FTP.

There are both 2.4.21 source and image packages in the /current tree of the Slackware FTP, if you want to use the latest kernel.

If you just want the kernel source for the standard 2.4.20 kernel, its in the /k directory of the /slackware-9.0 directory.
