Thanks Bob for the detailed reply. Sorry my original
mail was not clear enough.

I have a computer with Linux (kernel 2.4.18) installed. But source is not 
installed. I have worked on Linux little bit but never got into 
installation etc.

I have to modify slightly TCP and IP related files from exactly the
same kernel version as exists in the machine. Thats why I have to figure 
out how to install just the source without changing anything in the 
running kernel and then modify it and recompile.
