Does this thing have a GUI(Graphical User Interface)?
Does this thing have a GUI? If so, how do I get to it? I tried to run "metacity", but it said that it couldn't load Window X, or something like that. So far basically all I've done is load slackware. I tried to do the changing the kernel thing, but it couldn't find dir /usr/src/linux.

Did you try running the command 'startx'?

That appears to be working, thanks for the help. Is there any way to get it to boot to startx automatically?

in the file /etc/inittab
change the default boot mode from level 3 to level 5

Also, when I boot up, my sound card, modem, and CD Rom device all don't work, is there a way to auto configure these like with MS Windows?

Slack uses run-level 4 as its graphical mode.

Also from the command line you may type:

'xwmconfig' for a ncurses menu to choose your window manager. Or you may just edit '.xinitrc' in your home directory.
