Alright, I'm having a hell lotta trouble with this technique. I can't seem to be able to slide up and down the frets fast enough to get that "vibrato" effect. Any pointers?

start slowly and build up the vibrato speed i guess...

From what you've written I think you're misinterpreting the classical vibrato technique anyway. You don't need to slide up and down the frets, you just need to move your finger back and forth within the space of the fret you're on; not atually moving beyond the bounds of the frets. What you sound like you're trying to do is the, for want of a better term, "wanking" trill where you slide between two frets fast enough to make it sound like a trill.
