Do you have other operating systems sharing the drive?

If so, I would make a note of the partitions used for other OSs and delete the partition(s) that are for Slackware use (I use 'cfdisk', I find it much more easy to use than 'fdisk'). Then write again the partition(s), reboot and try to install again.

fdisk -l will tell you what partitions fdisk is seeing.

I also find cfdisk easier to user.

Firs of all,thank for answering .I installed windows 7..at the same time I made two partitions more for installing slackware in one of them..so I'd have to delete this partitions and make a new partition for slackware using 'cfdisk'.
