Many of the ftp sites don't offer the iso files for Slackware anymore.  If 
you're getting them over a cable or DSL (or faster) connection then 
bittorrent is definitely the way to go.  However, if you do use bittorrent, 
please try to leave it running for a while after you finish your download 
so that some others can get the files from you and so that a large burden 
is not placed on a few individuals.

If, on the other hand, you are on a modem, you might consider an 
alternative means of getting the files.  I have them on CD and would be 
happy to mail them to you.  Or, you could purchase them from
