First, is '/home' a directory or a partition ? How many partitions do you have and the sizes of each, run 'fdisk -l' (that is L lowercase) or 'df'. If you think about it, if '/home' is a directory, it is more difficult to keep it. If it is a partition it is easier. If you have enough room, you can make a new partiiton, move the '/home' directory to that partition, erase all other partitions, then install Slackware.
I guess this is the reason why you should have at least a root, swap, and home partition, instead of just root and swap. (boot is also a possible one)
