Hi, i'm a newbie, just installed slackware 10.2

You should not need to compile a new kernel to use sound with Slackware. After installing Slackware, run alsaconf as root to configure the sound module on your system.

Once configured, you can run alsamixer to adjust the volume settings, and then alsactl store to save then as a default.
