I guess it will be the same way on Slackware as on others.
Make sure you have quota support in the kernel (recompile it)
and add usrquota as flag on the partition in /etc/fstab ?

1. compile kernel with quota support
2. install quota package
3. use "quotaon" to enable it - for example
on startup
4. use "edquota" to edit users quotas
