Xfree upgrade

"New Slackware packages for XFree86 4.2.0 and glibc 2.2.5 are now available in the slackware-current tree on The XFree86 build includes kernel modules for DRI support (these were built against and require a 2.4.17 kernel to work). Enjoy! "

That is what it says on the slackware website. Now does tha mean that i ahve to be running kernel 2.4.17 to have DRI support or can i run another kernel, such as 2.4.18 and compile Xfree DRI support into the kernel during menuconfig?
Thanks in advance
