Slackware v11.0 on Toshiba Satellite A135-s2376

I am trying to compile a kernel and associated modules for the kernel which come with Slackware as an extra and because my system needs it a Celeron M 520 which
is in a Toshiba Celeron M 520 single core A135-S2376 laptop which I bought last month and promptly removed VISTA. Information is scanty.


I also chose XFS as the filesystem. I thought I had to use the mbr (sda)
and there is a notice of this about XFS. However, now to try out a new kernel I simply type "lilo" not "lilo -c -M /dev/sda mbr [-F]"

it seems the superboot /sda1 is /dev/sda ???? - any comments on this?

Are there different softlinks necessary for the /usr/include and /usr/src/linux
than previously for 32 bit kernels. I notice there is a build directory in /lib/modules/

I am also having trouble with the ATI Xpress 200M integrated video "chip" and also
with the touchpad working under X Windows [any system]. I have tried several configurations. As I can't compile a kernel, and can't load the appropriate modules, i.e., ps2 mouse, I can't get gsynaptics to work.
