The kernel source contains the headers so you must have not installed the right source

Have a look in /usr/src and what exactly was the package name?
AthlonXP 2600+ / nForce2 Asus A7N8X-X / PNY GeForce FX5900 Ultra / 1024Mb Samsung Ram /nForce Sound / Hansol 920D Plus 19" monitor / Lite-On 32x12x40 / 2x Maxtor HD 40Gb/80Gb / nVidia 7174 driver / Gnome 2.10.1 / Kernel / Slackware 10.0

For reasons that I do not know, Mandrake did not include the kernel source code in the 3-cd download set of ISO's released for 9.2. To get the source code, you need to go to a ftp mirror that has the Mandrake rpms, and get the kernel-source rpm that matches the version of the kernel you're running. Install that rpm, and you should be good to go.

Good luck,
