Post Getting 2.6.7 with slackware on a fresh install


Newbie Question
Is it possible to get the 2.6.7 Kernel working on a fresh installation of slack...without going throught the process of installing the 2.4 kernel and then upgrading to the 2.6

No you can't

And besides.. It's always a good idea to recompile your kernel after a fresh install in order to customize it to your system.

In order to install Slack on an SATA system, you'll need a boot disk running the 2.6.7. Then you'll want to choose the option "use kernel on bootdisk" when the installer asks which kernel you'd like to use.

There are quite a few threads about this floating around

Yeah i guess i didnt make that clear...so all i have to do is download the the 2.6.7 kernel, put it onto a floppy and then insert the floppy when the installer asks me what i want to use...fair enough. I'll give that a try
