Just a quick google:

http://www.kernel.org/

I don't have a clue about Dazuko.

By default, the linux kernel source is stored in /usr/src/linux*

However, sources are (usually) not installed, but you can install them with a quick command from the terminal (Applications-Accessories-Terminal)
sudo apt-get install linux-source This will install the kernel sources for your current running kernel.

For source code for other software, look in synaptic for packagename-source, where packagename is the name of the software whose sources you want.

/lib/modules

It seems some of dazuko's functionality is no longer supported in the 2.6 kernel. You will have to study the 2.6 readme file in the package. right click to extract the package.
