Well, the instructions on the web page are not wrong.  I've added a
sentance to there talking about how you need the drivers floppy also.

I've also added a link to Adric's area -- I would have added this
earlier but I didn't know about it.  Adric, do you think you could put
the kernel .config file there as well?  This would be generally
helpful to people tracking down other problems in the future...

The references are found in the "unofficial updates" section of the
releases/slink/ web page.  But even so, I've added some more text
talking about thow that stuff is not officially supported.

[ Note: web pages may take a day or so to get updated ]
