when i load linux from lilo it starts correctly but after a while when load
some things it breaks and i got a black screen.. it is not x i try to use ctrl alt space or f1.. to delete.. this black screen stays and my hdd work for 1 secound... i try to see logs but i dont get some because it breaks? i start my dvd slack and type hugems.s root=/dev/sda3 and it was succsessfull but if i add rdinit=ro i got the same error:(
i got a nividia 7400 go card i download it and save at /boot but i need some libs to run it :( maybe i can fix this error with mpcia = off ?

When you say a 'black screen' does it get as far as asking you to log in, and asking for your
password? If it does, then this is normal for slackware - to start a GUI, you need to type 'startx' <enter>. Apologies if you already knew this and/or this wasn't your problem :)

Now i Type on lilo start "linux apci=off" and i dont get a black screen (blank screen) i get login i type root and i can use all what i want
i think my problem is pcmcia interrupct maybe i must load modules and configure ?

Turn your laptop on without any USB and PCMCIA devices connected.
