There are a set of initialization files or init files in Linux.  You 
will need to write a script.  All the steps that you used to create the 
bridge by hand is what will be stored in this script.   The your script 
will need to be called in runlevel 3 and runlevel 5.  This is how Linux 
systems startup.  You may want to search on System V ( as in five ) 
startup files.  Each distro puts their startup file in a different 
directory.  On Redhat systems it is in /etc/rc.d but I am not sure if 
this is the same for Slackware.

I hope this helps,
