It sounds more like this:
Should be a link in /usr/src from linux-2.0.35 -> linux
Your linux symlink in the /usr/src directory is missing. It really is the
preferred way to have kernel sources set up. You already found out why.
That would account for your other findings. You just discovered the results
without knowing the problem.
