Just have a backup of it for your sake.
Install the new distro. Don't install there boot loaders anywhere.
Switch to slackware. Make an entry in /etc/fstab to mount the drive of newly installed distro.
Now in lilo.conf of slackware just give the path for vmlinuz and root etc of the new distro.
Thats it !!!
