How did you install Slackware? And which release number did you
choose? Ideally that should tell you something. I, myself, run
Slackware, and the early releases do give the user a chance on how to
construct the partitions.  In fact 14.0 which I ran in a VM did that.
I've not had a chance to try 14.1 but I imagine it might also do

Also please switch to plain-text mode as its easier to work with.
