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.

I'm going to assume it is. You cannot run Mac OSX applications in linux. Period.
To help with your problem.
It looks like you set slack to boot into init 4 by default, but did not properly configure X11. Also, GPM is not starting up. To remedy this, boot into single user mode. (At lilo, pick your kernel and then type "single" after the kernel option)
Then from there login as "root"
chmod -x rc.gpm
then type xorgconfig and answer all the questions about your graphics hardware.
Well, I tried, and slackware is still telling me that the mouse resource is busy. I just don't get it.
Another thing that I've just remembered is that this always seems to happen after I get my soundcard working. I get it working, get done with it, shut her down. Then the next morning I want to get on it, can't because of this.
IT REALLY GETS ANNOYING. I hate the fact that it's like I have a choice, will I take sound or graphics.
MORE EDIT: It's also a PS2 mouse.
FIXED: I fixed it by editing /etc/rc.d/rc.M so that the mouse goes first before ALSA. Seeming ALSA wants to mandate, and everything still works.
