    Slack 5.0.1? I'd highly recommend going to a much NEWER distribution such as Slack 10.1. Or do you mean Vector Linux SOHO 5.0.1?

    If it's VL, it's pretty easy. SOHO will set up the dual boot for you using LILO.

    Slax is Slackware's LiveCD i think

    As for installing it to the hard disk, i am not sure, but you will need to setup grub or lilo in order to boot slax and windows.
