Ok...

1)
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)

root@localhost:~# /sbin/lilo
Added Linux *
Added Windows

Once thats done, try and re-boot your PC without the Slack CD.

2)
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

3)
If you want to execute commands that will initiate programs on boot, you can try and add this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

4)
Quote:
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.

Let me know if this works.

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.19-ac4
label="Linux
read-only
append="hdc=ide-scsi"
Good Luck
Kristijan

Yes. I think those apend entries in your lilo.conf should work.

As for SQL and AppleTalk, I can't say, I have never used them so I can't really give you something solid to go on.

The things you're talking about are probably compiled into your kernel. Try configuring your kernel and recompiling without support for things like Appletalk.

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.
