First off, I am beyond jealous that you got a kernel panic!! I love getting this things! The mass array of computer code and jargon looks so pretty on the screen. I have only has two and both were amazing to watch. Anyway!

Open a terminal and enter

sudo fdisk -l
post output here. Are you using Ubuntu's GRUB and menu.lst? If so, post its contents here. Additionally, post the contents of slackware menu.lst.

You should have installed lilo to the root of Slackware when you were given the choice during installation.

Lilo's equivalent of menu.list is /etc/lilo.conf, but if lilo isn't installed it won't exist. There is a way of installing lilo after you've installed Slackware, but I'm not sure about it. Use the Search option on these forums.

Wait, I'm confused. Is he trying to configure lilo or grub? He mentions both in his post. And menu.lst will exist even if he didn't install it. The default will install. I have mounted it several times from distros that I did not install grub. Maybe you know this and I misread your post?

His post is a bit confusing. I think he installed Slackware without lilo - no bootloader. So his Ubuntu grub won't be able to boot Slackware. All he needs to do is install lilo to the superblock of his Slackware partition (not sure how to do that), then edit his Ubuntu grub menu.list. Something like:

Code:
title  Slackware
root   (hd0,?)
chainloader  +1
? = number of the partition.
