In Slackware ftp (I guess you will find, ok? ), in /usr/src/linux-version, in CD.

I asked because I tried using the make command I get an error "command not found". I'm having a go at kernel 2.6.16. Thanks again all

You might be better served by building a new kernel from scratch since you'll want to customize it for your hardware. Especially, if it's a newer kit with wifi, centrino and >1GB RAM.

You can get the latest kernel from kernel.org. Here's the how-to I wrote for myself. It's based on the kernel README and shilo's sticky "This is how I do it all".

1. Extract kernel to /usr/src/ using command in README
2. rm linux
3. ln -s <kernel source> linux
4. make mrproper
5. make menuconfig
6. make
7. make modules_install
8. mv /boot/vmlinuz vmlinuz.old
9. cp bzImage (new kernel) to /boot/vmlinuz-<version>
10. ln -c vmlinuz-<version> vmlinuz
11. cp System.map /boot/System.map-<version>
12. cp .config /boot/config-<version>
13. rm System.map
14. ln -s System.map-<version> System.map
15. rm config
16. ln -s config-<version> config
17. Add stanza to /etc/lilo.conf for old kernel
18. run lilo
19. Cross fingers and reboot!
