well in slackware-current it says 2.4.32 with 2.6.15.6 under testing.
you can tell what kernel your using by typing uname -r in a term
though you can go get any kernel you want and compile it yourself ;-)

You can tell which kernel you're running by running "uname -r" in a terminal. 2.4.31 is the default kernel in Slack 10.2. You can download the latest stable kernel (2.6.17.7) from kernel.org, compile it and use it if you want.
