ftp.<area>.kernel.org.  area is where you are i.e. us, eu, ca.

now for more important things, if.h should not disappear.  Installing a kernel
should not affect it.  It should be part of libc-dev.

Now, when you install a kernel do NOT place headers from the kernel on your
system.  Use make-kpkg to make a deb of the kernel image and just install it.

libc6 came about in part to reduce the need for kernel headers.
