What cd-burning software are you using? And how are you making an iso? If you download the slackware iso and then use nero to burn the image you shouldn't have any trouble.

There are also a few cases where 8.1 won't be recognized to boot to. I'd suggest creating boot disks to start the installation.
It explains the process at www.slackware.com on how to create the boot disks.
