Check: http://www.slackware.com/install/bootdisk.php && http://www.slackware.com/install/rootdisk.php
For general installation: http://www.slackware.com/install/

When you are on setup you can choose the source of slackware files.

Oh, you have the iso, well you have to open in with some program that can read it and extract it's content. Slackware's setup won't read the iso file as it's a cd image.

Just keep in mind where you extract ISO's (partition + path to directories), I would try the windows disk utility to note the start sector number and the end sector number of that partition in case of.
