The current stable Linux kernel is 2.2 (latest is 2.2.13) and has IPv6
support, 2.0.34 is really old. I haven't followed Slackware lately, but
I'm surprised if the current Slackware uses 2.0. Most distributions will
give you a kernel image with IPv6 disabled, so you will probably have to
compile the kernel yourself, and say yes to IPv6.

If you have more questions, please ask.
