Thanks for all comments guys.
You mentioned in your first posting that you're running a fresh install of 13.37, I would therefore recommend to simply delete the kernel-directories in /usr/src and make an upgrade to 14.0 with slackpkg.
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system
should work for you. There are also some notes from Pat

I know you said you have it working. As an FYI, my normal steps after downloading and unpacking a new kernel:

make mrproper
make localmodconfig
make menuconfig


make mrproper
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
make oldconfig
make menuconfig

Not sure if you're building the kernel as root, from what I've read you really shouldn't have to. make should be run as normal user, only make modules_install should be (has to be) ran as root. Also, not sure if you passing -j #number parallel processes to compile kernel. (dual core or HT CPU?)

No need to go that far.

Just follow the instructions in UPGRADE.TXT that are included in the iso.
