You should be able to boot into the gui using the command startx. or as the root user run the command "init 4" to open the gui in runlevel 4 which included the login manager.
If you want the system to start-up into the gui (runlevel 4) you can edit the /etc/inittab file on the line that shows:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
wow.... thank you... tried...with startx itself it worked.. But, its default KDE..i have to get GNU...and one more thing, i can not see thee NTFS in slackware like fedora. I hardly need them. Is there any way to access them. I remembered, when i install slack, i mounted all NTFS .
thank you mfillpot...u rockz....
I think what you are referring to as GNU is actually actually Gnome, GNU is just a license type.
Slackware does not ship gnome because it requires too many dependencies, however there are some third party projects that are working to port gnome unto slackware such as Gnome Slackbuild (http://gnomeslackbuild.org/).
You will find many things that are different in slackware compared to other distros, just ask your questions here and we will help you through the transition.
