yes, slpkg is installed.have you installed slpkg yet ? you can use that to find any package . its here https://slackware.pkgs.org/current/slackware-x86_64/grub-2.04-x86_64-1.txz.html
Yes, I installed Slackware to /dev/sda.i think for an old timer like me this may be too modern ! but you said you installed slackware last on sda ?
so i guess if you read /etc/lilo.conf you can see :
# Append any additional kernel parameters:
boot = /dev/sda
bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda1
label = Linux
you could try adding:
table = /dev/nvme0n1p2
i have a feeling grub2 is going to work better
I would see if you can add the other distro info to lilo first ; i sucessfully once did it with a dual boot with Windows. But you have gone deep end first with your hard drives , so you have SSD then i saw sdb with Linux type 83 , is that home or something ?Yes, I installed Slackware last to /dev/sda.
Do I have to use pkgtool to remove lilo?
I'm not good with pkgtool because I've never used it.
Can I use removepkg instead?
It's (sdb) the root partition of MX Linux.I would see if you can add the other distro info to lilo first ; i sucessfully once did it with a dual boot with Windows.

bash-5.0$ ls /var/log/packages | grep lilogo to a terminal , su <root> <password> -> $-> #
type : ls /var/log/packages | grep lilo
//was does it give you ?
Basically to remove any package slackware its just a case of :
# removepkg <packagename>
eg i couldn't get SweetHome3d working with open jdk so bullt Oracle JDk i removed Aliens just half an hr ago using :# removepkg openjdk-8u232_b09-x86_64-1alien
