Well I had a little help I bought the slackware package from www.slackware.com and I got the slackware essentials book with the software (and yes I know its free but I have a 56k modem and I'm not going to download up to 2 gigs of info in 56k, and besides gotta buy the guys nachos right ;D). I figured out how to compile the kernel just wasn't sure where to get the source from.
The configuration I was reffering to was the stuff in
All the features that can be turned off or on or made modules(some are self explanitory though but) it would take quite some time to ask about each individual one so I was wondering if there was a good place to refrence all (or at least most) of them instead of looking them all up individualy
mainly so I can slim down the size of my kernel and get some stuff working that isn't.
And any tips to configuring the whole system would be hepful.
Actully the main prolbem I am having is getting my video card to work I thought i turned it on when recompiling the kernel but doing a Super Probe dosen't detect anything but a SVGA (my video card is a VooDoo 2) I have been trying to get it working so that i can atleast get into X Windows. But I have been totally stuck.
Thanks for all the help though and this forum is great.
