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.

You will need to have a boot-loader installed in fedoras / partition, or
have slacks lilo installed in slacks root and make fedoras grub point at
that as a "foreign OS" (like it would have for Windows).
The thing is that the two distros don't share a /boot partition (I assume
that you didn't partition the machine like that - if you did the whole
setup may be a different story).
well i am in control center > system administration>boot manager LILO now i found a button Add Kernel and Add other OS.
now first let me tell which one i have to choose ....for adding and option for already installed fedora 4 in my system.
mitesh.ever calm down, tinksters right we kinda need to no your partition layout before we can help, it's only so our advice doesn't mess up your whole setup
firstly, let's start with how many harddrives you have, then boot to slackware, start konsole and type 'cfdisk' this will show you your partition layout, then we can suggest a viable way to dual-boot your machine
okay buddies i'll tell u the partition scheme i have.
i have one HD 80 GB and have 6 partion listed below
10 gb ext3 primary bootable slackware
10 gb ext3 fedora
19 gb LVM created by fedora installation
rest free space reserved for windows ... right now have linux only.
is it okay ... ?
Its not at all okay. You should have specified the partition scheme using the command #fdisk -l (may be you not knowing this at this stage)
anyways..... read this article to dual boot your machine.
come back to us if you still face some problem.
