I am using SlackWare 3.2 With Kernel 2.0.29. When i try the
new zImage file after compiling the kernel i get a whole
lot of Unresolved symbols in Module xx.x messages. The rest
of the bootup works and i can use Linux afterwards.

What a i doing wrong? please help.

if you have compiled a new kernel, the version of the modules may be not the same than the kernel. Do 'uname -r' to see the kernel version, and look at '/lib/modules/2.0.xx/' (where 2.0.xx is your version) to see if you compiled the modules. In case you included all in the kernel, edit the file /etc/conf.modules (of if you use RedHat run kernelcfg under X) to see if they are lines in it (in this case remove all unnecessary lines). If you don't want modules, you can recompile without the option 'autoload of modules' . If you want modules, make menuconfig in /usr/src/linux and declare the modules (again look at /etc/conf.modules), then do 'make dep; make clean ; make modules ; make modules_install'.
hope this help.

I had to remove the existing modules directory, and there is no
conf.modules or modules.conf files anywhere to bee seen.

At long last i figured out the answer. There was a lot of stale
rc files in /etc/rc.d and i had to remove them.
