I think you are the first trying to install on a Slackware system (at
least you are the first one to report this).

These mode switches smell a bit fishy to me.

I'm afraid we cannot help you. We never used Slackware (ok, I have to
admit that I started with Slackware in 1993, but this doesn't help
here ;-)

Does Slackware provide a "linux32" tool? If yes, please try running

	linux32 /mnt/cdrom/install -v -d /opt/eldk-3.1.1 ppc_8xx
