Yep! Kernel and RT patch are from kernel.org.

No, linux-source (a typo, I called it "kernel source") doesn't include
version.h and .config and perhaps some other headers or configurations
too, while linux-headers do include version.h, .config and perhaps
something additional too.

There's a note by the NVIDIA coders ...
*"Please note:* unfortunately, it has become difficult to keep track of
the pre-/post-installation steps required for [K]Ubuntu, and the above
instructions may be incomplete. If in doubt, it is recommended that you
use your distributor's NVIDIA Linux graphics driver packages,
Even if I should use the onboard ATI again, I decided not to give back
the NVIDIA card, because I'm curious about this problem.
Btw. ASAP I'll try a packaged kernel + restricted-modules + nvidia-glx
or what ever is pre-build to use NVIDIA's proprietary driver.
