First, you have to roll a kernel with umsdos compiled in.  I don't remember
how exactly Slack does it, but the idea is to have root in a umsdos dir and
to use swapfile on dos fs.  Details should be in UMSDOS-HOWTO I guess.

You'll also want to go through /etc/init.d/scripts and hunt down calls to
e2fsck etc.
