Check out this web page for pptp client. I used it to set up vpn with a nice GUI interface with RedHat and Fedora. With slackware, I didnt have any luck getting the GUI part setup so I had to use the command line using /usr/sbin/pptp-command. After the setup you just run that command and follow the menu to start your previously configured vpn connection. I hope this is what you are looking for
