I want to install the drivers, but I don't have the kernel interface (I think thats what its called) or the source, I looked for a kernel-source package, but I could find one. Does anyone know what it might be called? Or where I could get it? I have the three Mandrake 10 Community discs.

first check you're kernel version

open up a terminal

and type

uname -r ...this will show you what kernel you're using, download yum from here,

type yum install kernel-source#[kernel number here] , you might wan't to search in this forum for the 2.6.4 kernel update posted on the 1-2-3 page [somewhere there], on what to do in the yum.conf file in order to be able to download 2.6.4 kernel...
