Sounds like a bit of info is missing
Normally you would find your files in /usr/src/linux. However that is often
just a link to the real directory which which on my machine here is
and see what you have. Then link it to /usr/src/linux, change into that
directory and carry on with your config.
Make sure you have the right instructions. Its different for 2.4 and 2.6.
There are lots of good kernel compilation guides. I followed the one in the
Gentoo handbook....mainly because it was already printed out.
