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
