    what happens when you simply type startx?

    It looks like you don't have a X environment on you system. I believe you would have to have a /etc/X11

    You installed slackware 10.0 in 2gigs? First I would reinstall and make a smaller swap file 1000 isn't needed on that small of a drive.
    I am not sure if you can even have x with that small of a partition.
