Compiling Kernel with debian


I've just installed my first debian disrtibution (Potato 2.2) and I
wanted to compile a new kernel but get the
following error message when I execute make menuconfig:

rm -f include/asm
( cd include ; ln -sf asm-i386 asm)
make -C scripts/lxdialog all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux/scripts/lxdialog'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -DLOCALE
-DCURSES_LOC="<curses.h>"   -c -o lxdialog.o lxdialog.c
In file included from lxdialog.c:22:
dialog.h:29: curses.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [lxdialog.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/scripts/lxdialog'
make: *** [menuconfig] Error 2

I've downloaded the sources for kernel 2.2.15 and 2.2.16. They both
don't work.
I've also installed the deb package "kernel-source" and
"kernel-headers". Why is
this devided ?
Am I missing a package ?
