Hi Brent and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. That's a tricky setup.
What you want to do is, unbolt the slave cylinder and keep it lower than the master cylinder. Being carefull to not let the rod come out of it. Then you pump the rod on the slave cylinder several times to work the air out through the master cylinder. It's sort of like bleeding it backwards.
Remember to keep the fluid level full and do it a few times with a 3 to 4 minuet break in between. Then, let it sit for about 15 min and when you pump the pedal, (about 10 times) you should get a good clutch pedal. Thanks

Bleeding air from the hydraulic clutch system is necessary whenever any part of the system has been disconnected or the fluid level (in the reservoir) has been allowed to fall so low that air has been drawn into the master cylinder.
WARNING NEVER use fluid which has been bled from a clutch system to fill the master cylinder reservoir, as it may be aerated, have too much moisture and/or be contaminated.
