Slack kernel

The kernel on disc 2 is compiled without preempt, so to get one of the real benefits of 2.6 on the desktop, you have to recompile it. It *does* make a difference!

I'd advise starting the config from scratch too, while the .config that comes with 2.6 on slack is very compatible, it builds about 20,000 modules for obscure hardware, so it takes ages to compile.
