Assuming your EXT2 partition is on /dev/hda2, it's easy to convert.  Just
type (as root, of course) "tune2fs -j /dev/hda2."  You need to have a
reasonably recent version of tune2fs to do this, but Slackware 8 has one
that is recent enough.  I personally haven't noticed any great difference
with EXT3 over EXT2, but I seldom have a serious crash which is where EXT3
is supposed to really shine.
