ok
well there is a package at www.linuxpackages.net for slack 10.1, which should work on 10.2. the package lists some dependencies and you can look at the package script to see if any special configure options are needed

yes it appears to be installed
now download:
nessus-libraries
nessus-plugins
make sure they are also for the 2.2.5 version
then you should be able to use the program

ok now you should be able to go into Xwindows and either find an icon for it or type nessus or something like that to run the program. i have never used it so i don't know how it works. i do believe it is a program that run in Xwindows though.
