Ok, when you installed slackware you were asked to setup a root password. Can you login with it? If so, type startx and you'll get into X.
Of course, it's recommended to create a user account instead of using root all the time

Edit: And if you want to boot straight into X, read this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...46#post1183446
