You have made a wise choice
First off, familiarize yourself with the manual which you can see here:
The Clone Info / FAQ thread has a lot of useful information in it:
I would recommend picking up some of the latest Militia Lube which came out recently. Best lube I've used to date. Here is an example of where you can snag some, there are multiple sizes. The large one is the best value and will last you a good while.
I would reset the board to defaults (manual will explain how to do that).
While it will function off of anything from SLP to HP, I would run things on the lower side if you have the option.
Other than that, just go out and play with it, and let us know if you have any questions that come up!
