To shutdown properly see: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=344228

About the lilo error, when did you start to get it?

You can boot with the CD 1 of Slackware, mount your harddisk, chroot to it, run liloconfig and install it to the MBR, that will hopefully reinstall a working copy of LILO.
To do that issue the following commands:
Code:
mount /dev/hdXX /mnt
chroot /mnt
liloconfig
Replace hdXX with the device where Slackware is.

Also, probably your filesystem may got corrupted so before this commands, do: fsck /dev/hdXX
