Not quite sure on the answer to your problem. But I do recommend you download the latest version of Slackware 11.0. Its what I'm using currently. The setup has an option of using huge26.s as your kernel when you boot the install cd. This will install slackware with the new Kernel which has finally been considered stable and not testing. That way you'll get more hardware working out of the box with udev and the speed difference while booting is much faster. Slack 11 is now a pretty up to date distro. best look into it. MUCH has changed since 10.0


Note if its a server your setting up probably stick to kernel 2.4

Thats My 2 cents anyways.
