Kernel source?

Hello Question: * I use 64Studio 2.1 (stable) with its standard kernel "linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64". * Where is the source for this specific kernel? I'd be most grateful to know. * http://www.64studio.com/faq_developer has a link which seems to be dead. Background: I need to add support for Mac HFS+ drives used by OSX. Thus I need to make the Ardis HFS+ module. Its build/compiling script needs the source for my kernel. Note I am not trying to build my own kernel. I just need the source for the one I already have to make an extra module, as I understand it. I have checked FAQ, forums, synaptic etc. Many thanks in anticipation Sven Oxtoby

I just saw Daniel's comment on the page http://www.64studio.com/faq_developer. The link has been fixed. I'm downloading the source now. Thanks again Sven

To build modules it should be sufficient to install the kernel headers only. Install the package linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64 from synaptic, and try again.

Thanks very much for responding (in 14 minutes nogal!) The headers were installed; unfortunately no luck using them. The instructions say I must have the kernel source. Does anyone know where the source is now? I thought it might be in http://apt.64studio.com/64studio/stable/pool/main/l/linux-2.6/linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-amd64_2.6.21-2_amd64.deb but that contains .ko files which I believe are compiled modules.
