Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Probably the easiest way to fix the L 99 error is to reinstall the whole OS. I've gotten this error before and have tried many different solutions with little or no success (actually none at all). Unless someone knows specifically how to fix this problem it will be faster just to re-install.
Now if you ever get the L 50 error. Use a boot disk or your installation cd to boot into your system and run lilo.conf.
You have the Slackware discs right? The second disc acts as a Rescue disc if my memory serves me right. When you have booted into a rescue session mount your linux hd (something like "mount /dev/hda2 /mnt"). Chroot to it ("chroot /mnt"). Then reinstall lilo "lilo".
