I'm a Slackware user that moved to OSX, atleast for my main desktop. I have two questions. How to i changed what apps start on boot, is there some mac utility for this or do i have to go edit the boot scripts. The second question is how to i set my root password. It didn't do it on the install.

The root password is in the same sort of area, only rather than Startup Items, it's under Security.

Thanks. There aren't many gui configs in Slack, it's a shock to have to use one

You don't have to, you can use the terminal...

Don't forget that OS X is based on FreeBSD
