Thumbs up Test kernel How to check this kernel is installed

Dear All,

I downloaded laterly the slackware 10.2 test kernel of from
After the kernel and module's being nstalled by intallpkg utility which stated in README.initrd in the same directory, what happens is that:
#cat /proc/version still echo 2.4.31

I've check with #ls -l /boot and figured out that the links all fixed to the newly installed module.
and so I got no idea what had happened.

It is simply a irrelavant bug or i have not got the kernel correctly loaded. Or I need some other idea to check out the kernel version besides #cat /proc/version.
