Default building kernel package on slackware12.1

Hi expert all,

I am using slackware 12.1 guest os in vmware 1.0.6 on win xp.

I need minimalist slackware.. so that I have recompiled the kernel-2.6.24.5 for vmware devices and installed modules supplied by vmware that is vmmon and vmnet. Finally build the kernel packages using slackbuild script

I am using below kernel packages

kernel-2.6.24.5-headers-x86
kernel-source-2.6.24.5_smp-noarch-2
kernel-2.6.24.5-modules-i486

I followed below ur for vmware kernel compilation, this url for gentoo but i adapted to slackware ..

I have followed below url for vmware modules installation
