Slackware 9.1 - Choosing Linux Kernel?


i passed all the packages installation and stuff, now i got to the stage which i need to choose the linux kernel.
there are several choices:
/cdrom/kernels/........./

the one that was highlighted is:
/cdrom/kernels/bare.i/bzImage

should i stay with this one?
im installing on an "IBM ThinkPad 600E" laptop.

If your unsure and there isn't one specifically for a laptop and use.. go with the bare.i kernel.

The 'bareacpi.i' might be useful for laptops.
