2.6.13 Headers

I have seen a lot of advice in various posts about NOT installing the HEADERS provided on Slackware 10.2 CD2, but instead use the 2.4 Headers.

How do I do this?.

Do I simply copy the /include directory from the 2.4 source tree to the 2.6.13 source tree?.

Thank you.

You shouldn't need to do anything. Slackware will install the 2.4 headers by default, as long as you don't upgrade that package with 2.6 headers, you don't need to do anything else, just continue working, compiling, etc as normal.
