First steps into slackware,... again

Done fiddling around, trying stuff I shouldn't with my experience level (which is none).

Wipped all distro of my harddrive, left Vista Business there ( which is needed for work purposes ) and started all over again. Now GNU/Linux will be slackware only.

Q6600 Core 2 Quad
Asus P5K SE with 2 GB ram
320 GB Sata disk
where 40 GB is lost to Vista Business
a Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT attached to iiyama 17" Prolite

12.2 with KDE 3.5
No more trying to play with -current, slack64 or KDE 4
When Slackware 13 arrives, we'll see.

Did burn 12.2 DVD, installed quite easy,. almost all default, except the running services at startup: I decided it would be a nice option to get cups, NFS, Samba, Apache and MySQL running from day one.

- Lilo did give me some error msg, and without floppy or USB bootdisk I was left with nothing, except my running Vista.

Since I don't know how to ' boot ' into my new installation with the setup-dvd to fix Lilo, I decided to give it another go.

Exact same installation:
- proftpd failed the second time I tried installing( dunno why this came up now? )
- LILO did fail on me the second time. Same error, something about " fix table " or something..

Now, damnit. I had Ubuntu 8.4 and Slackware 12.2 booting and running with Grub, no pain at all, but since I whipped Ubuntu, and wanted Slackware from scratch, I'm now stuck.

Will try to get it running though...
