getting pthread to work

I'm having trouble getting C/C++ programs using the pthread
libraries to work.  I notice that most of the definitions
in the various /usr/include/pthread/mit/*.h files are within
#if defined(PTHREAD_KERENEL) / #endif
Since those are the definitions I need and they aren't
working I obviously don't have the 'PTHREAD_KERNEL'.
I have Slackware Linux 3.1, with kernel version 2.0.27.
How do I get the kernel set up so I can use the pthread
library?  (I didn't see an option in the make config :(  )

thread support is always compiled with the kernel,
it's a clone syscall, and there's no option in make config.

you probably should tell us what your compiler does,
what errors you get, and show us example of your code.

First off, sorry it took so long to get back to you.  had a bad couple of weeks.

I see that your answer is correct and that I probably need to play with some things before I could post some specific questions about threaded programming under linux.  :)
