Slackware 7.0 default installs the 2.2.14 kernel I believe. You will
probably want to upgrade your kernel at the very least. I would check
the Slackware site (http://www.slackware.com) for more information.
Personally, I would go with Slackware 7.1 if you can, as it comes with
2.2.16 (if you have the bandwidth, download the ISO and burn it to a
CD).
