Skype from Slackbuilds.org would be one route you could use..

You'll also need the Alien Bob Mutlilib system, because Skype is 32 bits.

Don't know if this still counts, but skype used to have problems with eth devices higher than eth0 and would fail to connect properly. Slackware 13.0 would create no eth0 device but would start with an eth1 by default. I have had to change this udev rule to let Skype run in the past.

Personally, I used the skype package from linuxpackages.net. Worked like a charm.
