1-1.5 inches of slack. With you(or someone) sitting on the bike, just eyball it till it looks like you can move it vertically just over an inch. You should do it with someone on the bike because the chain gets tighter as the rear wheel moves upwards.

about getting it straight... i found that if i put the bike on a stand i just spin the tire and look where the rear sprocket meets the chain on the bottom and where the chain leaves at the top, make sure at both points the teeth are hitting the center of the chain, if you try it that way you will see what im talking about. and i hope you get what im trying to say. dont know if its the best way but thats how i do it.
