what īs next!
hi everyone!

I need the next procedures on Slackware 8.1 post installation.

my environment is gnome 1.4.

- I donīt really know if the way i boot is correct:

1- I simply press ctrl+alt+supr.
2- lilo loads from a floppy and canīt start windows.
3- I login as root... is this correct?
4- I write on the prompt : startx
5- gnome windows appears
6- the resolution I configured (I think I did it right) was 1024x768, but it seem to be 800x600. how can I change it?

login out:

1- what I do is to select the option "log out" it takes me out gnome and...
2- it gets back to roots prompt as "darkstar" and press ctrl+alt+supr and manully shut down

is this ok???

i need to know how to configure an user
and i need to know if there is another procedure you can guide me
