Default kernel sources or kernel headers

i have total confusion now....

i have install using the nvidia installer the new driver for GF4....
i get the Nvidia Logo.....i make the changes in XF86Config-4 and
everything seems to work fine..

but from the discussions i read ...i see references to needing kernel sources or kernel headers......i use the headers...is this correct..

Default Re: kernel sources or kernel headers

Well, I believe that what the nvidia driver needs is the kernel headers...
Then of course the kernel headers come as part of the kernel source...
