You should be able to run both apps in a chroot environment.

The basic setup would be something along the lines of:

- copy slackware 10 install to /slackware10
- mount usefull things inside chroot
    mount -o bind /proc /slackware10/proc
    mount -o bind /dev /slackware10/dev
    mount -o bind /home /slackware10/home
- enter chroot
  sudo chroot /slackware10 su <your_username> -

Don't forget the dash after the username.

I know you like Netscape 4.7 but have you considered how many known
exploitable bugs are in it? Running older software that accesses the
internet is risky.
