What do you mean by a customised kernel? Where did you get it from?
If you just mean it is a distribution debian kernel and hence different
from the vanila kernel.org version, then
apt-get install linux-source-2.6.18
and untaring the resultant archive should give you what you want.
For more details, see the thread 'Kernel source packages..' from where I
was working out how to reproduce my kernel from source.
