Booting Slack for the First Time

Hi, I'm installing Slackware 13.37 for the first time, so I'm a newbie, but I've used linux for a few years (Mainly Arch, Crunchbang, and Mint).

This may be a silly question, but how do I boot into Slack after installing?

I finished the setup process and no errors were given, and I rebooted, and Grub immediately booted into my old OS. I've tried using Grub to boot into another disk partition which I may have installed to, but nothing has worked thus far, as I'm no expert on Grub.

Is it possible that I installed to the wrong disk or partition? How can I find out?



Never mind, I simply forgot to format the target disk...

For the records, the issue has nothing to do with formatting but your lilo setup.
