Great thread and an awesome OS. Slack was my first intro to Linux in 1998 (you always go back to Slack!)
Anyway, as a 64-bit user, when the installer asks whether or not to install 32-bit compatibility libraries for openGL,
(or some such thing) should I respond with a YES or a NO?

Thanks a million & rock on!

You can chose "no" because Slackware 64 has no multilib support.

Outstanding. Thanks, thenktor. I chose "No".
Also, I did the "init 3", "install", "init 4" thing.
Rebooting doesn't actually seem to be necessary.
Besides, rebooting would harm my uptime :)

Yes, you don't need to reboot. What's your uptime at the moment?
