    Go to command line as root by alt control +f6 and open your file up and enter it.

    Chances are your X configuration wasn't done, did you go through "xorgconfig" before? If not, do that on a terminal (just go to a tty as described above) by running xorgconfig. Once you're done just restart X (ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE).

    Well it sounds like you can't get ANYTHING on your screen right??? SO my add vice is to eather... Install slackware again or download "Knoppix" at...

    and change your inittab back.

    I have the same thing on my comp (well that is it boots up into "init run level 3"), but I haven't tried to fix it yet.

    ignore the person aboves "add vice", just use xorgconfig to setup your Xorg properly

    Sorry

    I am very sorry that "Kern" said not to take my advice (yes he was right), altho I missunderstood you and gave you bad advice, and it looks like I acted like a "Know-It-All" (by the way I wrote the my last post) so VERY SORRY!!
