    Its rather easy to upgrade your kernel with Slackware. Just put the second CD in your drive and mount it (mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom) and the cd into the extra directory. There you will find the 2.6.17.13 Kernel. There is a README.initrd text file that walks you though the whole ordeal. Basically you'll want to "installpkg nameofkernelpackage.tgz" I always install the kernel package and the modules and source. You'll need the source for things like the Nvidia driver and such. I think you'll have better luck with the 2.6.x series kernel with your web cam. Just make sure and read the README.initrd.

    Hope this helps,
