Hi everyone, I've bought a new System76 Gazelle professional

  • Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit
  • 5 Free GB of Ubuntu One Online Storage and Sync
  • 15.6" 1080p Full High Definition LED Backlit Display featuring 95% NTSC Color Gamut in Matte Finished Surface ( 1920 x 1080 )
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • 3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor ( 2.40GHz 6MB L3 Cache - 4 Cores plus Hyperthreading )
  • 8 GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz - 2 X 4GB
  • 750 GB 7200 RPM SATA II
  • United States Keyboard Layout
  • 8X DVD±R/RW/4X +DL Super-Multi Drive
  • Intel Centrino 1030 - 802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN + Bluetooth Combo Module


I've been using Ubuntu for about 1 year on another system. I've also been trying other distros in VirtualBox on Ubuntu. I would really like to configuring my system to multiboot. Are there any issues with repartitioning my HD and installing slackware 14 and possibly ubuntu with my hardware above? Do I need the system76 drivers, for example?
