Unhappy kernel disaster...

so I've tried to compile the 2.6 kernel about one zillazilion times, I followed both


guides and everytime i reboot after i've followed every step in the guide, i get lilo and chose the new boot option instead of slack.old.

after linux is loaded, it tells me I'm still running 2.4.22 (!"==)!=)#!)=?!!!!! ..why?...

are there like "common" thing that might have gone wrone? help....m....e..... penguins are killing me...
