I am not sure if you can build ISO from -current. You can update to it from Slackware 9.1 by useing the swaret tool. /http://www.swaret.org/

If my memory helps me, you should follow the following path
ftp->slackware current-> slackware->list of directories where you can find the upgrades. (ie kde, x, and so on...)
Choose a directory where you think your software is and download it.
Then remove the old package(s) and reinstall the new version by pkgtool.

Do you need to completely remove the packages urka58 or can you just use the upgradepkg command?

Just trying to help

Jon

EDIT: However, I would just use Swaret and edit swaret.conf to download from current.

You can use upgradepkg, of course, but according to instructions from slackware site you should first upgrade and then install the packages, in order to make sure they are correctly installed.
So it makes no big difference in terms of time and accuracy of the installation.
It is only the method I prefer.
