put it on your ring finger, touch the string(s) with a somewhat light touch, but not so much that it buzzes, you'll get it right. and put the slide directly over the desired fret, otherwise it'll be wacky.

oh, and don't play in public until you're amazing at slide, otherwise, people will beat you and stick your slide in places it shouldn't go.

If you are willing to tune to Open-E, I picked up a lot of slide licks from Statesboro Blues (Allman Brothers Band version).
