    I'm sorry but what you mean by "kernel address"?

    If you mean the kernel source, it is usually in /usr/src/linux or /usr/src/linux-[version]. This is assuming the source is installed.

    The compiled kernel is in /boot. It will be called vmlinuz or vmlinuz-[version].

    No, he doesn't need the kernel source. He just needs to know how the kernel is called in his Mandrake install so he can add it to GRUB.

    As bryansmith already said, it's all under the /boot directory.
