Re: Newbie Q: Where are my kernel sources?
I've managed to load the kernel-headers OK!
Now, when I run hsfconfig (the modem installer utility) it says that I need
the kernel-sources as well.
I've transferred these from my Debian CD and "un-bzipped" them. Now I've
got a .tar package that I need to unpack.
I've tried to unpack this file using tar -x kernel-source-2.4.18.tar
however nothing happens.
Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong.

I haven't installed the kernel sources. I assumed they would be installed
as part of the Debian installation. Obviously not!
I'll try and install them from the Debian CDs that I'm using.

Nix those last two steps, those are for kernel-source packages.
