Asus k53tk-sx012v (win7 & Debian 7) to replace Debian 7 with slackware 14

Good morning,

I would like to install slackware 14 on my laptop (asus k53tk-sx012v), at the moment I have win 7 and Debian 7 (amd64). I would like to take out Debian and installing slackware.

This is my actual partition table:
root@amos:/home/amos# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x125fc5e1

Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1            2048    52430847    26214400   1c  Hidden W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/sda2   *    52430848   472442879   210006016    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3       472444926   976771071   252163073    5  Extended
Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary.
/dev/sda5       472444928   488067071     7811072   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6       488069120   644317183    78124032   83  Linux
/dev/sda7       644319232   976771071   166225920   83  Linux
I would like to have your advice in order to procede as follow:
to format (as primary) /dev/sda1 to usit as swap, to become 8MB (does it possible to do it?)
to change the Start figure of /dev/sda2 according to the new End figure of /dev/sda1, and to resize to 200GB
to erase extended partition /dev/sda3
to create new / primary partition /dev/sda3 to install slack 14 (ext4), to become 20GB
to create new /home primary partition /dev/sda4 to install slack 14 (ext4), to become 80GB
to leave 300MB of free space for other system

Now in order to use win 7 and slack 14 I have to configure LILO in expert mode, as explained here below:
Are there some other (easiest) way to get duel booting win 7 and slack 14?

Thanks for your attention.

/dev/sda1 is recovery partition why remove it?
Also Slack can reside comfortably within Extended partition.
As far as removing Debian you can use cfdisk in slack setup to delete & replace with slack partitions.
