I use K3b on my Debian. Apparently to put it into Slack you
do something like:

Go to http://www.slackware.com/getslack/ 
and coose a mirror close to your location and 
then browse to the directory 
and there you will find 

# installpkg dvd+rw-tools-

# su -

browse to the directory 

k3b-0.12.4a-i486-1.tgz package. 

# installpkg k3b-0.12.4a-i486-1.tgz

Then run
# k3b

YMMV with versions etc. Check on the latest appropriate
packages for your Slack distro for dvd tools and k3b.
