Completed my second install of Slackware 12.2 last night. Thank you, Pat:-) Absolute perfection! I'm a proud Slacker since 10.0. I'm dual booting Slackware 12.2 with FreeBSD 7.0 on one of my Slackware boxes.
As previously mentioned the best way I think to keep your Slack box updated is to subscribe to the security mailing list and then download, install patches as they become available. Also, as mentioned I use Slack build scripts from slackbuilds.org to install software not included on the install CDs.
I have a few trusted sources for other packages that I use. I trust the packages from Robby Workman and Eric Hameleers, both are Slackware developers. I prefer to manually update my Slack boxes.
