Well, I have not much used Slackware so I can't suggest that what u exactly should do, you can edit run level.
BTW.. to start X windows ( GUI )
simpley type
Code: [Select]
startx when are on text mode.

the other method is to first not setup ppp0 at bootup.
if u do and enter interactively then type
Code: [Select]
telint 5
it will give you the gui.
