Slackware 10.2 and installing kernel 2.6


Ok, I'm new with all of this and I was wondering if someone can explain me which files I have to download from kernel.org and how to install them . I want to put a latest stable version of 2.6 kernel on my freshly installed slackware 10.2

tnx

http://www.puresimplicity.net/~neosa...el/kernel.html
http://www.shilo.is-a-geek.com/kernel14.htm will both be of help. Also, in the Slackware forum, look for the threads on kernel compiling.

I believe that the mouse device for 2.6.x is different than under 2.4.x - do a search of LQ, I think this came up today.
