DEAR FRIENDS I AM NEW IN LINUX, AND HAVENīT HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH IT.
FEW DAYS AGO I BOUGTH A CD CONTAINING THE SLACWARE O.S, GNOME, KERNELS AND ENLIGHTMENT.

MY QUESTION: DO I NEED ANY OTHER PROGRAM TO RUN THIS O.S?

I PARTITIONED MY HD AND EVERYTHING WAS OK.

I DID A FULL INSTALATION.

DO I NEED TO SELECT PROGRAMS TO INSTALL?

WHEN I RESTART MY COMPUTER LILO PROGRAM RUNNED FROM MY FLOPPY, WHEN I CHOOSE LINUX, THE SYSTEM ASKED FOR A PASSWORD BUT IT SEEM I DOESNīT WORK AND I CANīT DO NOTHING IN MY COMPUTER.

I WILL APPRECIATE YOUR HELP, PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL OR ANSWER HERE.
THANK YOU

MAINOR GOMEZ..... COSTA RICA

1) please dont SHOUT

2) please use useful thread titles, e.g. "Password not working on Slack 9"

you don't need anythign else to run it, you presuambly have just forgotten your password, in which case please search this site for instructinos on how to recoever the password. if you've not even got into linux ever so far, it *might* be easier for you to reinsatll though if you don't understand the terminology.
