Have you looked here:
http://www.slackware.com/
http://www.slackware.com/install/
http://www.slackware.com/config/

Now if you are at the command prompt type:
startx
hit enter and you should have a gui

You should also set up a user account and only use root when needed. Go to the above site and read up on installation and configuration. When you have a question come back and post it. Try to be as specific as you can to help the people help you.
Good luck

CyrusX - you will have seen that I have merged your 2 threads into one.

Please do not start a new thread to highlight another of your threads. Keeping all of the discussions in one place helps you (and others) to find coherent answers.

What you did also counts as double-posting and is against the Rules you agreed to when you signed up.

I am also moving this to Slackware-Installation where it will get the exposure it deserves.
