installing slackware


Im running a dual boot with win xp and fedora core 3. I was wondering how i can uninstall fedora core 3 and install slackware. Im having trouble booting slackware from the cd. It boots fine, but when it asks what keyboard layout im using, it freezes, or atleast takes forever, then i reboot the computer. Whats going on? Thanks!!
