I would like to install RedHat over my existing Slackware...

It would be preferable to keep all current configs....

Also, installation will have to be via NFS FTP install....

How would I go about this?

I installed a while ago redhat over slackware and had practically no problem. However it is not a very clean solution. I'd recommend that you make a backup and then restore the files you want to preserve. I think that if you install redhat over slackware it keeps your config files by saving them with the extension .rpmsave so that you can compare them and make any changes.
Just remember to make a backup... in case anything doesn't work as expected.
