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.

First things first, pop your slackware9.1 CD back into your CD-ROM and re-boot your PC. From here there should be instructions on how to boot back into your Linux partition. Then as root, type /sbin/lilo, you should see something along the lines of this (depending on setup)

Once thats done, try and re-boot your PC without the Slack CD.
What services are you specifically talking about, if its something along the lines of ftp, samba, telnet etc...
edit your /etc/inetd.conf and # out what you don't want running on boot. Once that is done, save the file and run
killall -HUP inetd
If you want to execute commands that will initiate programs on boot, you can try and add this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Taken from WhiteHat post:
I think you may be able to solve this by putting a line into lilo.
Below I have written a sample for you to look at. The line you should put in is the one that says append. Replace ' hdc ' with whatever your cd-rw is.
This is not an attempt to solve your problem but just a reminder in the future, please use better and more helpful thread titles that actually describe your question in the threads you create. Regards.
I'll have to agree with trickykid on this one. I'd be able to solve this problem, but I'm not gonna take the time to read your lingo. Maybe you should be more patient and actually take the time to use proper grammer and spelling. Good Luck.
