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 tried the commands you gave.
for this command
root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro nomodeset
could not find kernel image: root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro nomodeset
and for this command
huge.s root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro nomodeset
it again got in the same situation...
stuck at the same point..
Our posts crossed - I have corrected that post - what you entered was for someone trying to boot into an already installed system - I forgot that you are INSTALLING slackware - thus you should just need to enter the one word "nomodeset" (without quotes) at the prompt.
Sorry my mistake. (I even clicked by mistake your post as helpful.. I need more coffee.
What you suggested is what you use if you wish to boot into an already installed slackware.
But you are trying to install Slackware, so you just need the one parameter.
i tried for the before given command it does not work and i tried for this one also.
when the screen appear and ask for pressing enter i entered nomodeset but it gave
could not found the kernel image : nomodeset.
You should also try booting without the "nomodeset" parameter, since it was acpi which was causing the problems up to that point in the boot process.
so what parameters should i give if nomodeset is removed then should i give only acpi parameter...
but i have one bigger query that if i forcefully stop the packages which are meant to load during boot since they are causing any trouble problem, will those packages not cause any problem after installations
