How to change what LILO says for choices?


Since installing my new kernel my LILO choices are linux and linux.old, I followed the how-to guide in these forums. How do I change it so it reads Slackware 2.6.9 and Slackware 2.4.26 or whatever else I decide?

Also, ringwraith didn't state this but in LILO you can only have one word names (like slackware-2.6.9).
