Try booting with a "bare" image (slackware calls it "bare" or "bareapm" if this doesnt work, you have an incompatible device in your system, and you wont be able to run Linux.

i have already tried bare.i and other image bootdisks but the
problem is always the same.
somebody told me there was a no_pci.i image which may solve the problem. i have to check out this file somewhere and try.

look in your bios for the pci setup, set this to auto, when it is on auto, set it to manual, otherwise ask your vendor about your bios, maybe it need some upgrading !

frow: what difference will that make? Linux probes the hardware regardless how this is set, if his hardware isnt compatible, it isnt compatible.. period.
