Can you post details on your lilo.conf or post it here, describing your setup, etc. Also have you or are you following the directions provided in the very top or first thread in this forum regarding compiling kernel's in Slackware? Good detailed information.

If you run make install when using Slackware and compiling the kernel, you don't need to run /sbin/lilo as its already made the necessary changes. Hopefully you've edited your old kernel image information so its not lost, etc so if your new kernel doesn't boot, then you can still boot into your old kernel to fix....

About sound, well, how can we help you if you don't give us any details about your setup, hardware used, etc... ?

Well just like the error states on Line 9 in your config file, make sure you have a space and = sign between root and /dev/hda2 for your old kernel config:

image /vmlinuz.old
root = /dev/hda2
label = slackware.old

Did you leave out framebuffer support when compiling the new kernel?
