I need help...

Hello, i need help badly. I am trying to install slackware on my computer. I have no clue how to make my partitions using cfdisk or fdisk (i only managed to do 2 with cfdisk) and so i had no swap and only 2 partitions. Now i installed it still, and it will not boot on its own, i put in my linux boot disk and then try to type 'startx' but it says something like : kernel image something something...i can't remember and i'm in windows righ now . So could i have help for partitioning and also, is there something like in redhat where u can choose in the beginning which OS u want to startup?

Seems you don't have a bootable partition.
