When I installed Freespire (the latest version), I didn't realize that Freespire hadn't included the kernel source code. And now, I need that source code. I want to install VirtualBox, and it needs to access the kernel source.

I went to Linspire, and they led me to a web site where source codes are available. However their source code version numbers are all different than Freespire's. I don't really know what to do.
So, here's my question: Where do I find the Freespire ver.2.0 kernel source code. This is the set of programs and applications that would normally end up in /usr/src/, once the OS is completely installed. The kernel that I use now, is: 2.6.20-16-lowlatency.
Can anyone enligthen me on the "lowlatency" kernel? Is is this a common kernel?

Can anyone help me? If it is not available, then Linspire/Freespire would be violating the open source GPL contract.
