Cool Installation Problem

I am attempting to install the Slackware distribution. I boot from the first diskette no problem, but when I try to add the rootdisk "color.gz" I get the message that it found a root image at block zero, but it never returns with a prompt for me to begin the full installation. I am a newbie, please help! Thanks in advance.
