Did you read the documentation README.Fedora where it says:

To use SLiM with Fedora, put the following
in your /etc/sysconfig/desktop configuration:

DISPLAYMANAGER=/usr/bin/slim-dynwm

To reboot or halt, login in as special username
"reboot" or "halt" - using the root password.
To get a console prompt use username "console",
and to switch sessions use F1, screenshot F11.

To view screenshots you can use ImageMagick:
convert /slim.xwd /slim.png
