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.

The Slackware installation did recognize the partition as another install. It's just that the user needs to identify that install. You need to be aware of your system layout so as to enter the proper assignments for your installations.
You can enter the Slackware install then as root you can edit '/etc/lilo.conf' to include the proper entries by including the stanza for your other installs.
You would then run the 'lilo' command as root to update your loader.
If you post your '/etc/lilo.conf' file then we could assist. You could also do a search here on LQ as this subject has been covered many times.
Distribution: Mandriva 2009 X86_64 suse 11.3 X86_64 Centos X86_64 Debian X86_64 Linux MInt 86_64 OS X
AS root or su on the command line give the command ls - /dev/disk/by-uuid
It gives you all the uuid of you're partitions than mount the partition of slackware to find out the complete name slackware vmlinuz and initrd
Once you find it nano /boot/grub/menu.lst nano or pico or kwrite
root (hd0,?) is partition ware slackware is minus 1
kernel and so on
initrd and so on
Any idea what have i done wrong even when i put in the slackware partition,it stills load the fedora?
I have also check from my laptop that when it boots slackware from LILO, it go to the /boot/vmlinuz to boot.
This is the LILO file where it boots the slackware:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = Linux
# Linux bootable partition config ends
Thanks for the help in advance and thanks for reading my problem.
