recompiled kernel on slackware 10.0, still can't compile new one

i have kernel 2.24.x and i am trying to upgrade to 2.6.x

i followed instructions from this thread (first post)

but i screwed up because the file i downloaded from was not the full source, but just a patch.

in any case, all the commands i did even after editing lilo and makefile... didn't seem to work, and i just recompiled my old kernel.

what am i doing wrong? after i get the full source on /usr/src/
what then?...

help much apreciated.

I wrote a little tutorial on kernel compiling that might help you out.
Made just for Slack, too!
