Yup,problem is I'm gonna erase whole drive because too many OSs.I'm trying to get Slackware together with MDK and XP,but I guess I don't need XPs and MDK 9.2,where eth won't work.(mdk 9.1 worked just fine)

So if some other GREAT guy here will help me with how to put Slack kernel into Lilo boot loader ,I'll not erase it.We'll see.

BTW,thanx dude

If you have space why not install a 2nd hard drive and put Slackware on that, then you can use the bios to select which drive to boot from, thus maintaining your existing set-up.

If you do decide to use a 2nd Hard drive, disconnect the first one before installing Slackware. After the installation is complete re-connect the drive and use the bios for selection, or if your main drive is big enough re-size the partitions, so that you have 3 drive's under windows and put Slackware on the 2nd or 3rd drive.

Resizing is always risky as you can end up loosing data. Maybe someone else is more knowledge-able than what I am and can provide a better solution to what I have posted.

Thats my 2 cents on the subject.
