I installed slackware and grub and I messed up my menu.lst file because I don't get any menu options just the command line. How do I get the fancy menu up? Here is what the file looks like. If it helps I am using grub 1.98. By the way thanks.

It seems the runlevel is in CLI mode. Change your runlevel to GUI mode(/etc/inittab).
# 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)
It did not work. I was reading it and it seems to be a tutorial for suse. Thanks for the for thought.
Hopefully you are talking about the link EDDY1 posted. If so, you'd better explain yourself - "It did not work" is absolutely meaningless. What did you try, how much did you read, and what failed.
How could you construe it as a Suse (only) tutorial ?.
