If I am using odin to flash a new kernel, do I put the file in the pda slot or phone slot?

Also does anything else need to be checked / unchecked.

Reason I ask is I am probably going to flash a rom that uses base kernel and will be losing root. I will need to flash a different kernel to get root back.

thanks

Put it in the PDA slot, click whatever it says to start it up (can't remember.) And you're good to go!

I am preparing to check out KL2 and had a similar question... Do I just use the zImage directly from a recent entropy DD, hellraiser, etc or do I need to package it in a .tar?
