Jack truck up, take the wheel off, take the brake drum off, and take your brake shoes off. Then take a pair of vise grips and close off the rubber brake line leading into the hard line that feeds the cylinder. Then take the hard line loose at the fitting on the backside of the wheel with a flarenut wrench. Then take the two bolts out of the back of the wheel that hold the cylinder on. Install the new cylinder and repeat the steps in reverse to accomplish the task at hand. Its fairly simple really. Take your time and look at what you got to do. The best way to learn simple mechanical things like this is to just jump in it and do some wrenching. Just don't overtighten the brake line fitting that goes into the cylinder and you should be good. You probably won't even have to bleed your brakes if you squeeze off the rubber brake line good enough, just don't tighten it so much as it smashing the rubber line too much and it rupturing the line. Good luck and let me know if you need some more advice.

OP meant master cylinder, not slave cylinder. Master is pushed by the brake pedal, slaves are on the wheels.
It depends on which type of master you have. Usually you just have to disconnect all of the brake lines and electrical connections, install a new master, reconnect, and bleed.
It's best to replace the booster at this point, since you have to remove the master cylinder to get to it. It will save you headaches down the road. It's 9 years old, may as well...
