Hi

You can install Sabayon
If you work with Vista and you improve difficulties (tatooed motherboard - MBR)
you should use EASYBCD (very easy to install and use) to boot on a vista dual boot

See you soon

Just be careful about the graphics card - I can't be sure if that'll work being a new ati - but I know that it will work in a couple of weeks if it doesn't work now.
