Slicing a psd is fairly simple, what version of ps are you using?

I have avoided the actual "slice" tool in photoshop for several years now. For the most part it can yield images you don't really need -- they could easily be replaced with some css. My process is:

Create guides for the areas I would like to slice
Start at the top and rectangular marquee the first area
ctrl+shift+c to copy a merged version of what is selected
ctrl+n, return -- this will create a new image the size of what is copied
ctrl+v - paste it
alt+shift+ctrl+s - save it for web
ctrl+w - close it to get back to the original

I find this a little more effective than cropping in place, since you always have your original to go back to without undoing.

I slice it... I just do it in such a way that I get all the images that I only need and the rest are stuff I can add with CSS which I later remove when I'm done.
