Encrypted partition EEEPC


today I want to install Slackware 12.2 on my EEEPC. I decided to encrypt my / partition. Because the Harddrive is so small, I decide to make a partition (sda1) with 100MB to leave it unencrypted and mount it to /boot. The rest (3,9GB) ist the / partition(sda2). I followed the Steps described in the Readme_Crypt.txt and started the setup after configure the /sda2 as cryptroot. I formated both partitions with ext2 and after the installation I edit lilo.conf. After everthing is set up like the Readme described it I reboot my PC but there only the number 99 on the screen. Does somebody know why this could be?

Best regards,
