    that seems a little complicated....

    are there any slackware iso's that just boot me into a 2.6 kernel?

    No, you'll have to install the 2.6 kernel if that's what you want. There are some Slackware spin-off distros that come with a 2.6 kernel as default, such as MiniSlack. I think Vector comes with the 2.6 as well, but I'm not sure.

    Get the SATA bootdisk image, and put it on a floppy.

    You might need both the SATA image and the kernel 2.6 patch.
    Unzip them to separate floppies an boot with them, then you should be able to do cfdisk.

    I am not sue after reading his directions how that is accomplished though.

    I looked a little more, as you can imagine I wasn't satisfied with my previous reply.
    Apparently all you need to do is boot with the sata.i kernel.

    Just type "sata.i" at the boot: prompt.
    Don't worry if you don't see sata in the kernel list, I tried it on my machine and it started booting.
