i've been using slapt-get for a few weeks now, and i love it, had not a single problem with it yet.

first you need to tell it what mirror to look at. you do this by editing

/etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
mine reads:
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.bit.nl/mirror/slackware/slackware-current/

this is a mirror close by to me (netherlands) that hosts slackware, and i prefer to update from slackware current, you can use the slackware 10.1 instead as well, whatever you prefer.
please pick a mirror from where you live (not the deafult slackware.com, this one is slow)

after you did this you do as root:
" slapt-get --update " this tells it to look at the mirror and see what packages are there

then you do:
" slapt-get --search aspell " then it will show you what packages are there with the name aspell in it.

when did this it said:
aspell 0.60.2-i486-1 [inst-no] aspell-en 6.0._0-noarch-3 [inst=no]

then you do:
"slapt-get --install aspell 0.60.2-i486-1 "

and thats it, it will download and install the package for you, just what till it says done.

hope its clear!!
