Did you upgrade your kernel to 2.6.7 and you are using reiserfs?

Maybe the Slack 2.6.7 kernel doesn't have reiserfs support hard-compiled. Check the config file. If reiserfs is a module, then use mkinitrd(new to Slack) to create a boot initrd that will load that module, before your 'real' root gets mounted.
Assuming that you made no mistakes in lilocofig...
