Why do you want a precompiled kernel other than the ones on the Slackware disks ?
I've never looked for a precompiled Slack kernel but I didn't see precompiled Slackware kernels anywhere except the ones on the official Slackware site/mirror.

If you download a precompiled kernel, be aware that you download it from a site which you can trust. Two reasons for that:
- backdoors
- quality

And compiling a kernel from sources yourself isn't that hard

It's better to compile your own kernel.............and customize it to YOUR
system......IE--Mobo, video/sound, chipsets, etc...........

It may take a while on your box, BUT if you go into the
/usr/src/linux<version>/Documentation directory........find something that
interests you and start reading..........alot of good info in that directory!!

IC...

ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...kware/kernels/
look through here at the individual kernel's by going to their folder and opening the config. and see if they have what you want is all I can suggest.
