Or, just leave it as it? (I would believe that formatting the /boot
twice (once for server, another for desktop) will allow the /boot to be
accessed by each at booting.)

2) When installed the SUSE server, I created a /swap partition. When
it comes to install the SUSE desktop, should I create it again (I intend
to allow the server and the desktop to share the swap partition)? such
as:

Format Partition: Swap
Mount Point: swap

Or, just leave it as it?

To achieve:

SERVER: /boot / /swap
DESKTOP: /boot / /swap

Hi
I would configure the two swap partitions as RAID0, then if needed it
will be faster..

What you need to do is also chainload in the second install grub
menu.lst as this will be the default. This will then mean you don't
have to modify either grub's menu.lst after a kernel upgrade.
