If this is any help, I'm using the 2.6.8-2-k7 kernel, and I have an amd sempron 2200+ so I'm guessing it's safe for you to use too.

yes thats the kernel to use otherwise the 386 will also work just fine.

command line: apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.11-1-k7
command line: apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.11-1-k7

if you need anything else in debian use: apt-cache search "whatever your looking for put here without quotes"

should work

I have never upgraded my kernel, but I believe that you have to reinstall the boot loader and then reboot... I'm not 100% sure so you might want to wait for a more solid answer

use this guide...any other questions I would suggest you use the search feature on this site like I did to find all the answeres you just asked when I needed help

You also need to follow that guide to the "T" such as adding new sources to your sources file.

command line: apt-get remove "xxxx"

is used to remove packages!

If you have debfoster installed, you can run it and when it asks if you want to keep your old kernel, say no.

reilly - if you have alternatives in your bootloader that you want to remove, please edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, the config-file could also be located in /etc/grub.conf depending on distro, Im not sure about slackware.

Take a copy of it before just incase:
'cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst_backup'

Regards,
- Johan
