If you want to upgrade the kernel from the 2.4.20 one that came with Slack 9.0, then unpack the 2.4.22 kernel tarball in /usr/src/ and run the following command as root:
cp /boot/config /usr/src/linux-2.4.22/.config
Notice the dot before config. This will give you a .config file that will allow you to create a 2.4.22 kernel with the same configuration options as the one that came with your Slackware 9 install.
If you had any drivers that you custom-compiled, you will need to recompile them for the new kernel. Make sure that you repoint the /usr/src/linux symlink to point to /usr/src/linux-2.4.22.
