Why would you want to boot Linux inside some sort of virtual machine like this? (Don't want to modify your computer? Use a LiveCD. Want to use Slackware for the forseeable future? Install it. Running millions of virtual machines? Do it properly with one of the major linux virtualisation projects.)
Why would you think that if it didn't run it would be a Slackware problem (contact your vendor)? Slackware just uses Lilo, pretty much a standard way of booting Linux for god-knows-how-many years. If your virtual machine can't handle lilo, it won't be much good at doing most of the other stuff you'd want to do with a virtual linux machine. You certainly won't see any stability/speed/security benefits that are one of the major attractions to using any distribution of Linux.
You could try installing grub on your virtual machine but now you're just getting silly - running Slackware on a third-party bootstrap program under a virtual machine.
