Some parts of the kernel are in /boot and some are in /lib/modules and 
maybe other places. And in /usr/src you will find the headers and source. 
IMHO it is too time consuming to find the individual files and copy them. 
It is much easier to use the package management for that. Just add these 
lines to your /etc/apt-sources.list:

deb hardy main restricted
deb hardy-security main restricted

Then use the command "sudo apt-get update" and install whatever hardy 
kernel you want.
