Where does the hugesmp.s kernel go?


After going through graphical install and rebooting I was uable to copy kernel img no file or directory was found. So how do I get this hugesmp.s and where do I store it? Do I have to create a 100mb /boot directory to setup my dual using loadlin? No I don't want to use lilo.
Thanks This Newbie appreciates you

Found the kernel in /boot.. guess that is where it gets stored during basic slackware12 install. Thanks

Can someone tell me what intrd does and do I need
to use it? Or is intrd built into hugesmp.s kernel?
Will using it mess up system?

Completed initial slackware12 install and am booting with loadlin from win98 wtih this:
------Linux.bat---------
@echo off
smartdrv /C
c:\loadlin\loadlin c:\loadlin\vmlinuz root=/dev/hdg2 ro vga=3
intrid=diskimage
-----end Linux.bat--------
Do I not need the last line? Did I misunderstand manual explaining that new large kernels require intrd to boot?
