    giving up wont help at all

    get the slax livecd , use memtest86 on it to test your RAM - for twenty four hours

    if it has a problem , its duff RAM, at least you'll actually know then

    if its a software problem, just bite the bullet and reinstall everything, if you partitioned with this in mind in the first place , you might have your data on a seperate partition anyway. no problem.

    diagnose the hardware problem, or reinstall the software

    theres no need for you to give up on your pc, and linux, at all just yet.

    fdisk -l /dev/hdd to show your partition layout, fsck the ext3 slackware partition. see if theres anything wrong with it.

    (why is it on hdd anyway?)

    He removed a CD drive - did he change the IDE wire or change master/slave settings. Is the drive in cable select mode? Sounds like a rewiring issue - check your master slave setups for each hard drive.
