    Could you post the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l             (That's a lower-case L in the command)
    You can get this from another installed Linux distro, or by using a LiveCD. Post the output here.

    In addition to jayd512's request, let us know which bootloader you installed and where on the hard drive you installed it.

    LILO is default for Slackware, so that's fine.
    Is this an external drive, or a secondary internal drive? If an external, then the simplest method would be to install LILO to the MBR of the drive, while setting boot options to boot from that drive first.

    If it's a secondary internal drive, what OS do you have installed there?

    Your last post shows partitions on sda and your fdisk output in post 5 shows sdb. Answer the questions asked by jayd512 above. That info is necessary before anyone can advise. If you have multiple drives and your Slackware is on sdb and booting from sda, what operating system and bootloader do you have on sda?

    So sda is Ubuntu, whilesdb is Slackware. You directed the Slackware installer to install LILO to the MBR of sdb, then you were instructed to exit the installer and reboot. Correct?
