When you don't update Lilo your new kernel will not be booted, it will start the old one. So your problem can't be a problem with the new kernel, but rather with your system, which is also indicated by the error you get regarding the missing glibc.
Is this the recommended full install?

When you have not removed your old kernel than lilo will boot that kernel if you don't upgrade lilo.
Regarding the glibc, do you by any chance have changed that also?

A common cause of boot failure with lilo is that at some time in the (perhaps distant) past someone moved some of the boot files but did not re-run the lilo installer. The system can continue to boot just fine for quite a while because lilo is actually loading data that continues to exist in what is now marked as free space on the disk. Eventually, something new gets stored in some of those disk blocks, and suddenly the old, reliable kernel that you didn't change fails to boot.

Recovery requires booting from rescue media and running the lilo installer.

then, for my question, can i place/install a new kernel or old kernel in my slackware in this situation?
should i use chroot?

Just install (or copy) a new kernel into the system, generate a new initrd, if necessary, chrrot into the system, update /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo.

With the Slackware DVD it is easiest to do that, you don't even need to chroot, just follow the instructions on the bootloader's page of the DVD to boot the installed system, the just install/configure the system as you would do normally with your system.
