    Kernel header files are files with C code that are a part of the actual kernel source.

    Kernel moduel directory is under /lib/modules/<kernel name and version>

    To jump out from X just hit ctrl+alt+backspace buttons...or change in /etc/inittab and set default runlevel to 3 instead of 5 do get to textmode after every reboot.
