After selecting "MBR" install the kernel image as the "default" option (the other ones are Boot from kernel in CD, from Kernel image elsewhere, etc. I am just recalling from my previous installations). After that, Slackware will do the rest :-)

Good luck

PS: No modifications in LILO, let Slackware do it.

Try: mount -t auto /dev/hda3 /mnt
You should use another directory instead of /mnt, that's an example, you can mout anywhere you like.
If that doesn't work, try to remember which kind of filesystem it has and use -t reiserfs or -t ext3 depending on what it uses.
If it's not formated, used mkfs to make a filesystem on it, i would recommend reiserfs.
If you want it to be automatically mounted on every boot, modify your /etc/fstab acording to your needs.

And if you have doubts about the commands just use the man pages, like man mount, man mkfs, man /etc/fstab.

startx
Now, will you PLEASE try doing something for yourself? That's the whole point with Slackware.
You might need to configure your xserver before you can start gnome. READ THE SLACKBOOK, IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

sfa1980, as Charred pointed out, there are things that are easy to solve by yourself, slackbook.org is very handy for that.

Regarding your last message about startx not working, well, it could not work because billion of things, you need to be detailed when you've a error, a question, etc, nobody can guess your error and provide a solution.
My best shot is that X is not configured properly, take a look at slackbook to see how to configure it. If you still can't do it, then come back with the detailed error. I don't want to offend you, but it's the best way to learn.

Well done! Not so scary as you thought, was it? Welcome to the Wonderful World of Slackware!

Edit:
For the benefit of others who may have the same question in the future, you may wish to consider starting a new thread about it in the appropriate forum. I'm afraid I know bumkiss about Oracle, but I would recommend just giving it a try, and seeing what happens!
