Quick Help - torque spec for rear axel?

I don't have any books on this bike. It's a 98 with what I believe to be stock gearing and wheel.

I am taking some slop out of the drive chain and don't know what to torque the axel to. I feel uncomfortable using my normal method of "tighten axel bolt till wheel is hard to turn, then back off until it just spins freely again".

Also, how much slop should there be in the chain? That's with me sitting on the bike, right?

Thanks a bunch! More maintenance questions in next topic!
-Abe.
