Slackware cannot boot from the hd and my mouse doesn't work

First Problem:
When I finished installing Linux-Slackware, the system rebooted, but it didn't work without the CD inside de CD-rom. Everytime I tryed to boot it from the HD it doesn't work.

Second Problem:
After giving up from booting from the HD, I let it start from the CD, but my moiuse didn't work too. In fact it desapeard from the screen.

I'm a newbie at Linux and its distributions, so please anyone help me!!!!!
