    c header files

    hi there

    i've been trying to install vmware. but it fails when checking for c header files:

    Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.
    What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running 
    kernel? [/usr/src/linux/include] 
    The directory of kernel headers (version does not match your 
    running kernel (version  Even if the module were to compile 
    successfully, it would not load into the running kernel.
    where do i find the correct sources or how do i update kernel?

    You will see your current kernel version by issue this command
    uname -a
    Then you'll have to install the sources for this.

    thank you, but when i try to install it says 'everything already installed'.
