Boot up with the Slackware DVD and follow the on screen instructions to boot to an existing Slackware installation. You may then edit /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo or run liloconfig and build up a lilo.conf. I tend to do the first as my lilo.conf has a few oddities.

Great advice! Worked well for me, also. Thank you! :)

I have left a partition on my hard drive for windows, which will need to reluctantly be needed when I find a game that wont run in wine. Thanks for this, I'll mark it down for later.
