If you have a live Slackware CD .iso then you will need to burn it to a CD. Not copy it to CD but burn the image to CD. Put the CD in the drive with booting from CD enabled in the BIOS. Follow the instructs. I'm not aware of a way to boot a live CD from the hard drive while you already have an OS loaded. Might be possible, I don't know.
