According to Pat, the official upgrade path is:

10.1 > 10.2
10.2 > 11.0

From the 11.0 UPGRADE.TXT file:

"This document explains how to upgrade from Slackware 10.2 to Slackware 11.0"

I'm not sure about keeping the MySQL version that came with 10.1 and running it on 11.0, but 11.0 does come with MySQL.

Ok, I thought the same way.

Maybe exist an easy way to upgrade MySQL 4.x to 5.x when installing it from source ? If I will compile new version of MySQL with the same options, as old one (installed from the package), remove old and install new (from source) - will i have a troubles or this is the correct way?

I'd say that would be less work and a better result than upgrading.
