Sound drivers are not in the delivered kernel; you have to build your
own.  To do this you need the kernel-source package (which contains
the files you are wanting), and the kernel-package package, which you
can use to build and to make a Debian package out of your new kernel.

Read up carefully on how to build a kernel, and make absolutely sure that
you have a means of booting your old kernel, in case anything goes wrong.
