Hey everyone, I just burnt slackware v. 10.1 and gave install a shot, I have a 120gb hd and i set 6000mb to /. 2089mb to swap, and the rest to /home and formated bolth/ and /home to ect3. Install seemed to go smoothly, however when it told me to reboot and eject disk, all that comes up is a black screen with the word GRUB, any help with this would be appreciated, thanks.
You should be able to solve your problem with this excellent tutorial.
if you just want to manualy boot it then you could at the grub prompt if you know the exact name of the kernel or atleast the first few letters type
hit enter then type
then hit enter and it will boot
kernel /boot/exact_name_of_kernel or the first few letters and hit <TAB>
then check if you made the /boot/grub/grub.conf file or /boot/grub/menu.lst
For some reason it wouldn't let me type anything. it was all black with grub up in the left hand corner and a white flashing _ next to it but when i pressed keys nothing showed up, i reinstalled slackware and tried loading Lilo to my MBR and when i rebooted grub was gone (thank god)
