It can be done automatically. Change the the default runlevel in /etc/inittab
Code:
# These are the default runlevels in Slackware:
#   0 = halt
#   1 = single user mode
#   2 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
#   3 = multiuser mode (default Slackware runlevel)
#   4 = X11 with KDM/GDM/XDM (session managers)
#   5 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
#   6 = reboot

# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
id:3:initdefault:
It's more than likely set to 3 as shown in red above, just change the 3 to a 4 and at next boot you will get a graphical login
