boot from you slackware installation disk, run back through the setup routine, but do not format when selecting the drive you slack installation is located on. skip the install software section and goto the configuration section, skip down to the section to reinstall lilo, reboot

Hey guys,

I finally did it, thank U everyone for support, so it was kernel problem after all. Last advice made it through. First I just reinstalled lilo but it wasn't enough. So here is what I did:
Get slackware install cd(I think it's the best to get exact version u were using before, in my case it was 13.1). Before starting setup run "pkgtool" and cleanup messy packages u're planning on reinstalling anyway(in my case it was lilo and kernel).
Then, run setup, as colorpurple21859 said, run through setup routine but do not format your partitions, just mount them in a setup process, then select packages u need to install, I've deselected almost all and left only what's related to kernel and lilo. So and that's about it, I've got my old huge kernel and what's left to clean up a lil in my system. All my old configurations are present and seems to work(too excited right now, so can't check everything, but apache and my some crucial rc scripts are working the way they used). So that's about it.

So, with upgrade all I've got new kernel 2.6.35.11 and now I'm on my old 2.6.33.4.

Once more, thank U everyone for Your support.
