I've had good luck using alien (http://www.kitenet.net/programs/alien/)
to install Mark Logic Server on Debian.  I can't speak to slackware, but
alien supports going to the tgz format, so you have a pretty good
chance.  Let me know if that doesn't work for you and perhaps we can
work something else out.
