Are you sure that you have installed the 2.6 kernel correctly?
After installing the 2.6 kernel, there is a symlink /etc/rc.d/rc.modules that points to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules-22.214.171.124, which I suggest you change to point to your new rc.modules-2.6. This is because when you installed Slack, you must have chosen a kernel image on the install CD that was based on 126.96.36.199.
However, when booting Slack, the boot scripts check the kernel version and use the appropriate rc.modules.
If you are seeing this message at boot, it may indicate a problem.
Did you also install 2.6 kernel modules when you installed the kernel?
