Kernel upgrade MDK 9.2

Was planning on upgrading to kernel 2.6.4 today, when I realized that I don't have a /usr/src/linux directory. In the past, I know this is where I would have usually done the upgrading, and I was wondering if this lack of a directory was really a problem, or if MDK had moved the kernel sources to a different directory for MDK 9.2

In the past, I was told that the only reason there wouldn't be a 'linux' directory would be because I didn't install all of the development packages when I initially installed the OS. As far as I can remember, I think I installed anything and everything related to development. Still, the only folder in /usr/src is RPM.

Is it ok to go ahead and attempt a kernel upgrade here? Where is the current 'linux' symlink, since this is where it used to be?
