I'm not a slackware user so not sure on network structure, but using the search feature here showed a few post on ' slackware bonding '. Have you checked those yet? Also going to google showed several as well for ' slackware bonding '. I am not sure but is slackware debian based? If so most articles on debian should apply.

Sorry to sound like an idiot, but What is bonding? The more "in context" result I got when searching in Google for "define:bonding" was "Bandwidth ON Demand Interoperability Group" and I don't think you mean "process of falling in love with a newborn baby."

Edit: And BTW, Slackware is (a little bit) older than Debian :P

Edit2: Nevermind, I found it. Basically is about making several network cards behave as one.

Edit3: Looks like you need ifenslave (the source is in the Linux Kernel Source) and for some weird reason the only pre-installed HOWTO which talks about it is /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/openMosix-HOWTO chapter 9.4

You'll also like to read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/networking/bonding.txt

about Debian GNU/Linux
The Debian distribution was first announced on August 16, 1993 by Ian Murdock, then a student at Purdue University....
The Debian Project grew slowly at first and released its first 0.9x versions in 1994 and 1995.
about Slackware GNU/Linux
The first Slackware release, 1.00, was on July 16, 1993 by Patrick Volkerding, founder and lead developer. It was based on the SLS Linux distribution and supplied as 3" floppy disk images that were available by anonymous FTP. Slackware is the oldest maintained distribution to date.
about SLS GNU/Linux
Softlanding Linux System (SLS) was an early Linux distribution, founded by Peter MacDonald in mid-1992. It was the first to offer a comprehensive Linux distribution containing more than the Linux Kernel and basic utilities.

SLS was probably the most popular Linux distribution at the time, and dominated the market until the developers made a decision to change the executable format which was not well received by the user base (a.out to ELF). During this time, Patrick Volkerding decided to modify SLS by tweaking and cleaning it up. He called his finished work Slackware. With the unpopular direction SLS had taken, Slackware quickly replaced it and became the dominant distribution used by nearly everyone.

Similarly Ian Murdock's frustration with SLS led him to create the Debian project.

So no, of course Slackware is not Debian-based
