You can download the current kernel,kernel-modules,kernel-firmware from a mirror then cd to the directory they are in and use either pkgtool or pkginstall to install the newer kernel. will have to blacklist the stable packages in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist to keep them from being replaced by the stable kernel, during updates that is if you want to use the current kernel on the stable release

Are you wanting to compile a newer kernel or install the kernel from current? To install from current go to a slackware/current mirror and download all the kernel-* from the "a" directory and do as mentioned above. If you want to compile a kernel then you need to do some research on how to do it first, since your asking what to do next with a linux-3.2.7.tar.bz2 file.
