looks like you didn't include some needed stuff, biggest i can think of are the virtual file systems needed to boot a 2.6 kernel, for some neat reason you can choose to not include them.

anyway

i would start by using the 2.6 monster kernel that is on slack10.2 disk2
trick to that is you boot with the test26 kernel, the install the test26 kernel, then on your first reboot everything fails, because the 2.4 modules are installed, so you have to uninstall the 2.4 modules, and install the 2.6 modules from the second cd, the readme says to leave the headers alone so i did, works fine.

that will boot most super computers
then copy /boot/config to /usr/src/linux/.config
then run make oldconfig
then run make menuconfig
at this point you can start slowly picking things out and rebuilding to streamline the kernel

the only changes i made to it were to compile in things like my NIC so i don't have to worry about modules loading, the size of the kernel doesn't really matter(please no flame war)
