Can someone give me grub boot info?

I cant use LILO on my machine... can someone give me the info i need to boot slackware with grub? (especially the parameters like RO or VGA=??? and things like that).

I saw that in the /boot/ folder there isn't a initrd file... i have no idea how to boot this thing.

My Grub menu.lst for you. Just modify as needed.
Easiest way is to just run grubconfig though.

# GRUB configuration file '/boot/grub/menu.lst'.
# generated by 'grubconfig'. Sun Jan 2 09:31:37 2005
# The backup copy of the MBR for drive '/dev/hda' is
# here '/boot/grub/mbr.hda.1109'. You can restore it like this.
# dd if=/boot/grub/mbr.hda.1109 of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1
# Start GRUB global section
#timeout 30
color light-gray/blue black/light-gray
# End GRUB global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Slack (on /dev/hda1)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.7c root=/dev/hda1 ro vga=773
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Mandy10.1 (on /dev/hdb1)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb1 ro vga=773
# Linux bootable partition config ends
