I have a 250 gb hd on my desktop, 100 gb of that is dedicated for windows vista. I wanted to allocated 50 or so for opensuse. Is that enought? if so how should I allocate that 50, ie how much of it should be swap or mounted to / or mounted to /home etc?

Take the amount of RAM on the machine in GB and double it! If you
cannot multiply by 2, then use a calculator.
2x the RAM for swap is only needed if a) you have little RAM and Linux will swap and/or b) you are going to need suspend to disk. If none of these applies and you have enough RAM (from 1GB and up) then 1 GB swap will be enough
