ok first recompile done. The only problem i have is that it looks like none of my modules are loading. When I did make modules_install, it went through all of the modules and with each one said there was nothing to be done.
Any ideas?

it shows a list header:
Module Size etc.
Not a single module is listed.

Well in that case, yes I am pretty sure i did. If not, is there anyway I can change it without doing a complete kernel rebuild?

Hey, I am frustrated! I followed this guide completely, then got to the point where I need to use mkinitrd. My slack 9.1 does not have a mkinitrd. Anyway, I skipped this step, as there was no old initrd file, I didn't think there would be issues. Anyway, I finished installing kernel 2.6.3 and accidentally restarted before doing /sbin/lilo. Linux wouln't start after that, so I started with my boot disk which loaded kernel 2.4.22. Then I ran sbin/lilo and restarted. Linux did not load after the lilo selection. Black screen. Was it so bad that I missed the step and restarted when I did? Or did I make some other mistake? Someone help because I reinstalled slack 9.1 and am going to update the kernel again, but I would like to prevent the mistake I made...

Ignore my last post...as it seems was being done anyway...I figured out how to do it on my own. But I messed up with the modules so my sound wasn't working...
Now I'm just gonna stick to 2.4.22 for a while and not try to care about being on the bleeding edge. I've learned a lot though, which is good, but if anyone cares to read this, whats up with having to recompile the entire kernel again if you miss installing a module? Thats awful and seems like it would be unaceptable... Maybe there is another way?
