Alright; I have finally got slack to boot successfully. I wanted to try Gnome (KDE is default) and the others, so I tried x86config, which I thought was the way. Didn't work- so, I tried the new xorgconfig. I answered everything, fairly certain (except monitor rates- i've got an 18'' LCD, and was uncertain on that...).
Now, when I type startx at the prompt, i get the following:
Sure! I have an ATI Radeon 9700 pro. No drivers installed yet- fresh copy of slack. An, honestly, don't know where to start with drivers yet =] . How would I change those? StartX did work until I went through xorgconfig and screwed it up, now, the message above is what I get.
