sound modules install problem!!

Hi I am a linux slack newbie but not that newbie .Well I just get my hand on slackwar 11 and it didn't have sound module /dev/dsp in the computer.When I install slack ,i usually selected default kernel 2.4 but after getting all the thing done(install baghira ,get karamba and desktop transperanty all that )I usually complie kernel 2.6 own my on own (enableing support for ipod memory stick bootsplash and so on). But this time I choose test kernel 2.6 instead of usually 2.4 and /dev/dsp seem to left out .Since I use ac'97 onboard sound card I download the alsa driver from realtek website and try to complie it . A minor glide I use to face in mandrake , after I ./configure and run make command my sound module ac'97 codec modules install fine but didn't finish the make process as it in like all .It stop at this sound blaster live (emul or something like that (I use to have that sound card)module saying that compling problem because of the source codec like object file this is missing or somthing like this is not suppose to be there.But since I got my ac'97 codec I didn't bother much about it and go on make install . There 's problem now , the moducles seem to install in /var/lib/kernel-2.4 instead of /var/lib/kernel-2.6 when i check the folder I found out that there wasn't any folder name kernel 2.6 .So the this ./configure have to put in some command to make the folder name kernel-2.6 .right ?So can you guy give me any tip for to configure like this .or Make the make complie process smooth and correct without any problem .Or do i have to complie the entire kernel like before?
help !!(been out of touch with linux for almost 2 years now ,need to refrest my memory)

You need to install the modules package for the test26 kernel.

I don't remember the CD number (2 or 3) but here's a mirror location for the kernel modules 2.6.18 (which is the test kernel in slackware 11.0):

Thanks man I found the stuff but I had to reinstall all the installation all over again because .after I had install kernel header and kernel modules and in couple of hours after I reboot. The kernel wouldn't load and it said the kernel is too big or something like that .So I had to re install everything again and this time I choose kernel 2.4 and it was ok.
