Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

"Loading Linux" is about the last thing a bootloader says. Something is funny there.
If you think you have an acpi problem, try booting with acpi=off as a boot parameter. Watch out for cpu heat. Peersonally I don't think it will solve much. Then get us exact information - not what someone thinks, but exactly what the box says, even if you make no sense of it.
People, its nothing funny here. I've made this post when I was hurry, and couldn't be very very accurate. I'm saying the first message the Slackware says when booting the OS. In this message it freeze and make a continous beep.
Sorry, but I see the thread title now, and I want to write Caotic problem when upgrading to slackware Current.
When I go home I can be more accurate about this problem.
I seem to remember up-arrow & down-arrow as working. It's a _long_time_ since I used lilo. When it inevitably threw up 99 99 99.... or barfed on some other error, I used go to http://www.toms.net/rb
and download a floppy linux, boot off that, chroot into my / and rerun lilo after tarting up the config file.
