Question, If I upgrade my computer, mobo, ram, CPU, will I have to re-inatall linux (slackware 10) Or can will it pickup the new harware and adjust? I really don't feel like starting over again.

As long as the basics of your computer stay the same, it should be fine. If you are Upgrading from ide to sata hard drive types, p4 to amd64, etc, then you will probably have some trouble, but it can all be worked around.
