Kernel 2.6.7

The slackware stock kernel only has ext2 support built in. If you use reiserfs/xfs as root partition, you have to make a initrd(ram disk). If you compile your own kernel and built the file system support into the kernel other than modules, i think you would be ok without mkinitrd as directed.
