I am not sure how to configure a boot manager, though you can use GRUB2.

I can definitively say Linux supports GPT and OpenBSD does not.

System Rescue CD/USB recognizes GPT disks but can not mount or read UFS2, either on MBR or GPT.

If /dev/sda is partitioned with GPT, partitions would be /dev/sda1, sda2, sda3 and so on.

NetBSD supports GPT though not as elegantly as Linux or FreeBSD.
