Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Read the UPGRADE document in the slackware tree. It will tell you how, by going into init 1.
It might be better to just re-install as about 60% of the packages would be upgraded.
if you must try it, the best way is probably to boot Slackware setup (from floppies or CD1) and mount the partition, then run package tool there and remove the packages. then install the new ones manually or with setup.
I checked the libraries provided by aaa_base, I have more recent version for all listed, I suppose aaa_base is installed at setup stage of the slackware installation to procure a minimal compatibility without install additional library package.
