Kernel compiling


Can someone give me any directions on how to compile the kernel ??
It is the safest way to make a sound card work? I looked in the man pages but didn`t find anything on that subject.
I installed again Slackware 8.0 ( this time i looked into Patrick Volkerding`s help menu , it`s a trip . He advise people , in most cases ,to drop /home or /usr and just have a large root partition and 128 MB of RAM , really runs faster than anything i installed before .

Reading the howto would probably be the best place to start.
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html

If you've still got problems after reading that then you should repost with the specific problem.

Thanks Mik , i just remembered something that might be useful.
When i call xmms on console and try to play a track or raise the volume i get this message :
Quote:
xxwarning xx: oss_open ( ) : failed to open audio device (/dev/dsp)permission denied

and

Quote:
xxwarningxx: oss_open ( ):failed to open mixer device
(/dev/mixer) permission denied
respectively , can this be something else than a sound card configuration ?

Try changing the permissions on /dev/mixer & /dev/dsp.
"Chmod 755 /dev/mixer"
&
"chmod 755 /dev/dsp"
