upgrading slackware to 2.6.7

I am attempting to upgrade my slackware kernel to 2.6.7
It says to "cd /boot" and issue this command:
"mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.7 -m reiserfs"
bash-2.05b# pwd
bash-2.05b# mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.7 -m reiserfs
find: /lib/modules/2.6.7: No such file or directory
WARNING: Could not find module for "reiserfs"
The rest looks really simple, I just can't get past this. I have a feeling this is either going to be something very easy to correct or I am going to have to install something.

I then decided to try it with 2.4.26(current kernel) instead of 2.6.7(upgrade kernel) and I got this:
bash-2.05b# mkinitrd -c -k 2.4.26 -m reiserfs
bash-2.05b# mkinitrd
/boot/initrd.gz created.
Be sure to run lilo again if you use it.

It seems to work fine. I still feel lost.

-Thanks in advance

You will need to install the kernel modules for 2.6.7 including it's reiserfs module.
