Trying out a kernel e.g. 2.6.4
I would like to try out the latest stable kernel 2.6.4 on my Slackware 9.1 install, which is currently running 2.4.22. Not out of any dire need, but just getting to grips with life in Linux generally, and it seems that kernel compilation is a good thing to try and improve your setup.
Anyhoo, what I was wondering is, if I download the new kernel and go through the configuration, will it replace my old, currently working kernel or can they co-exist together and I can perhaps just have another entry in GRUB pointing to the new one as a boot option?
By the way, does xconfig exist in slackware?
Thanks in advance
