In most installs of Slackware /boot/vmlinuz is a link to the vmlinuz-huge-188.8.131.52 kernel which makes it easier to use instead of trying to remember what version of kernel to use.
The huge kernel has everthing installed into it so you do not have to use a initrd.gz file. however because of this, the huge kernel is larger therefore your system won't be as fast as it would be with the generic kernel. Until you get a correctly working initrd.gz you will have to boot your slackware with either /boot/vmlinuz or /boot/vmlinuz-huge-184.108.40.206. After booting into your slackware system with the huge kernel run the following to help with mkinitrd.
so for right now see if slackware will boot with this;
