Slackware 12.1 Install

I'm new to Linux and have a virtualized (VirtualBox) Slackware 12.1 system that I'm trying to get to install to the virtual disc. What command do I use to install after I've partitioned my drives? I'm assuming I can do it from Root. If there are any questions I'll respond with a few hours. Thanks guys.

Not to be too negative, but did you read the prompt? It tells you what to do.

Frankly, despite all the flack it gets, Pat's install program is one of the most idiot-prof there is.
