Question Booting Slackware GUI?

Ok, I've installed Slackware 9.1, I can get it to boot as far as a command line.
How exactly can I get it further?

I have looked into the threads here, but I've only seen something similar to do with Slackware 8.0 (threadid=9211 - BIG THANKS FOR THE ANTI URL SPAM FEATURE, DOING IT'S JOB AND BEING AS ANNOYING AS THESE CAPS). Does this cover everything or have things changed since?
Thanks for any [helpful] replies.
