I never downloaded the entire kernel source, only the kernel headers. That 
is enough for the nvidia driver compilation. Anyway, have a look at the 
directory /usr/src where you will find one or more subdirectories with 
the kernel source / headers. The actual directory name depends on the 
kernel version.
