I believe so... run fdisk and type:

fdisk/ mbr

That will clean the master boot record... insert the Slackware CD again, go to the end of the installation and reinstall the boot loader... That happens because Lilo was unable to overwrite a previous grub boot loader...

BajaNick, in the last day you have started TEN threads about grub. please trty to respect this site and it's member s a little more, and follow the rules you have agreed to.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

And i should also advise that Megaman X's advice is incorrect. lilo and grub will both work on any distro.

yup, that's true. I just believe he had another distro installed on his system (guess, RedHat) and Slack did not install Lilo correctly. Or he edits Grub, or he reinstall Lilo. I think the easiest is reinstalling Lilo That happened for me once... Am I wrong again? Sorry if I do ...
