Skype can be installed here; at about half the page you need to select your distribution then the download will start.

Here's a direct link to download the OpenSUSE version.

So to download and install the RPM file,
rpm -ivh skype-
System requirements as quoted from the Skype for Linux page:
Skype for Linux

1 GHz processor or faster.
256 MB RAM.
100 MB free disk space on your hard drive.
Video card driver with Xv support.
Either a built-in or external microphone is required for voice calls.
An internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
Qt 4.7 - D-Bus 1.0.0
libasound2 1.0.18
PulseAudio 1.0 (optional)
BlueZ 4.0.0 (optional)
