How to use /testing for kernel 2.6.7

When installing Slackware 10.0, how do you choose to install kernel 2.6.7? (which is located in /testing) I want to choose this over the default 2.4.22, but I don't know how.

Do you choose this option when you get to the first prompt when you boot from the cd? (boot: ), or later, when you choose the kernel to install after you have installed your packages. I would much prefer to use kernel 2.6.7 from the get-go, rather than upgrade once I have the system installed with the other kernel (which for some reason I suck at doing).

Please help.

It does not give you that option during the installation.

Read the note from Pat V. that is in the testing kernels directory.
