I can at least help with finding the error logs. Check out the files in /var/log. There should be a file /var/log/boot.msg that is a text file that records all the stuff thrown up on the screen during boot. When errors show up after boot they go into /var/log/warn, your X log file is /var/log/Xfree86.0.log.
You may not find all of these exact files since I'm running SuSE and your running slackware. Check out the file /etc/syslog.conf, this file tells the syslog daemon where to print all the different system messages. If this file looks like a bunch of gibberish to you, read the manual page
