    Can't boot into Slackware


    Installed ver.10.1 yesterday, first I deleted existing partitions, and made new ones under way. Installed selected packages, and was informed after inserting 2 CD's that everything was installed. When removing CD from drive and reboot, the only thing that comes up is the word GRUB. I used GRUB when I had RedHat installed earlier. How do I get around this???

    I'm not 100% sure of what the problem is, but I advice reading Nerderello's Great GRUB Tutorial.

    GRUB is still installed in the MBR, you need to erase it by installing the lilo boot loader. You could boot from install cd 1 or from a rescue cd, run liloconfig, configure your booting scheme there and run lilo to overwrite GRUB.
