kernel data structures

Hello all!

I would like to examine some kernel data structures. The proc man page told
me under "kcore" that with an unstripped kernel binary /usr/src/linux/tools/zSystem
gdb can be used to examine these data structures.
I have the source code of my linux system 2.0.0, but in the linux directory
there is no directory named tools and there's no file zSystem anywhere.

Can anyone please direct me where to get that unstripped kernel binary?
btw, what does this mean, an "unstripped" kernel binary?

Thanks in advance!
