kernel sources for Lenny?

What is the _right_ way to install kernel headers,
and if possible kernel sources,
so that they get put in /usr/src/ ... ?? 

I installed these packages, 
from the www.debian.org web-site, <stable> distro:


This is where it (dpkg) put them,
(not in /usr/src/linux): 

pts/0:/usr/src>ls -lsa
 4 drwxr-xr-x  4 root root  4096 2009-09-22 12:09 linux-headers-2.6.26-1-686
 4 drwxr-xr-x 18 root root  4096 2009-09-22 12:09 linux-headers-2.6.26-1-common
 4 drwxr-xr-x  3 root root  4096 2009-09-22 12:09 linux-kbuild-2.6.26


These are Lenny (Debian 5.0, currently <stable>) kernal packages,
and Lenny is what's on the machine.  

What is the right way to get kernel sources and kernel headers
installed under /usr/src/linux?  

All this is in aid of installing
the XiG commercial X server,
which has features X.org does not,
and which asks that kernel sources 
(esp. headers) be installed under /usr/src/linux . . .
