I would suggest making a new rootdisk and boot disk, using color.gz and bare.i. Or if you can boot of the cd, just try booting off the cd, it will do everything you need it to.

Before you can start X windows you need to configure it. Type xf86config at the command prompt to configure it. You will need your monitor, mouse and video card specifications.

It looks like you did not install X windows when you installed slackware. Run setup again but don't format the partition just install only the X disks disk X1 and Xap1.
