Kenel mkinitrd help


Hi im using Slackware 10.0 and using the old 2.4.26 kernel, and i want to upgrade to 2.6.7 Kernel from the Second installation CD... ive read the Readme.mkinitrd on the cd.. but it doesnt explain how to do this with ext2 filesystem, which i am currently using, ive never compiled or made a kernel usable manually, only by a upgrade in fedora.... i need some help on how to go about doing this..
thank you
