Created a user account on slackware and now I cant enter root
 
Well I created a user account for Slackware and now I can't boot up into my root account, I don't have Lilo installed either so I am booting from the CD.
( not sure what version of Slackware it is but I got it within the last 6 months )

What do you mean boot into your root account? When booting, it should load the OS and then prompt you for a username login prompt to login to your system. And why didn't you install lilo or any other boot loader? Booting from the cdrom is going to boot the kernel from the cdrom, etc.

yea, I know that but my Lilo is messed up so when I done that it said my partritions were bad and couldnt find an OS. By booting into root i mean when it asks for a user and pass the username is root giving me all access, for somereason when im not on that account my sound card doesnt work
