    I don't use Slackware as my desktop ... but as far as I'm aware, Gnome support has already been dropped from Slackware. I do like Gnome though and when I did use a Slackware desktop, I used Dropline Gnome. It's installation is painless. The only caveat is that the install is a net-install.What I usually did was to install the base packages to get the Dropline Gnome installer running. Check out

    http://www.dropline.net/gnome/

    if you are interested. It looks like they've managed to make an installer and ISO you might not be required to do a net-install. Good luck man.

    thanks vern. i already figured it out. here's what i did:

    install fluxbox located in CD1 /xap
    echo "exec fluxbox" > ~/.xinitrc
    startx

    done.

    So you solved your problem by not using Gnome at all? heh.
