In my struggle to make Nvidia work with a new kernel, I deleted

If I was not meant to delete it, is there a way to get it back?

No, you were not meant to delete that, and it's not the end of the system. It's not like of my High School buddies doing "deltree /y C:\"... did you delete /usr/src or just clobber everthing in /usr/src? Just fetch a new vanilla (stock) kernel from kernel.org or apt-get/aptitude install the most current one (be sure to check that it's the srcs and not a prebilt binary kernel)
