You need to download it to use 2.6 kernels.

Slackware-current package:

It gives you a new version of modprobe, I believe, and other utilities the new kernel needs.

Difference between 2.4 and 2.6? Quite a lot. 2.6 is supposed to be about 10% faster during normal desktop use. You might experience new problems though.
