It's not 100% obvious, I know, but apt-get install kernel-package and
read /usr/share/kernel-package/README and get a source from deb (idepci
etc. are subsets of the kernel - source is the whole thing), or better
(IMO), from ftp.kernel.org, try 2.4.19 - download the tar.bz file
tar -xvjf *.tar.bz
cp /boot/*.config linux/.config
and play around!
