Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Don't pass init options. Change the 'root=' line to /dev/hda5 bacause that is where the Fedora root (/) is. If Fedora needs an initrd, put the path to it relative to Slack. If your fedora /boot (hda2) is mounted at /mnt/fedoraboot in Slack, the path to it in Slack will be /mnt/fedoraboot/initrd.img . Also, change the path to kernel image file accordingly.
Hmm, I'm trying to do basically the same thing and I'm running into the same error message. I have WinXP, Slackware and Redhat installed, with Slackware installed last. Slack and XP load fine, when I try to get redhat goin, I get the same error as DaVenom.
I've followed the steps in this thread (mounted my redhat /boot into slack, and added the root and images to my lilo.conf and ran lilo)
