Sorry, do you mean

Slackware 10.0 --> Slackware current

or

Slackware 10.0 --> Slackware 10.0 + Security patches

Either way, I imagine the method is exactly the same for 9.1 --> Current or 9.1 --> 9.1 + Sec :)

i do not use swaret, but one would imagine that if you are going to stay with 10, you would need to changed your /etc/swaret.conf to reflect version number 10.0. If you want to do the current thing, then you would enter that.
