Void it completely. Samsung has put a counter in the boot sector that can't be changed or reset and as soon as you flash a custom kernel or recovery image (necessary to root the phone) the counter will increment and cannot be set back to zero.

Although, I rooted mine after having it for less than a week, it is pretty easy and I haven't had any issues after following the RootzWiki Simplified method with ClockworkMod Recovery. Just make sure you follow the directions EXACTLY (don't forget to mount /system in CWM Recovery before installing Superuser.Zip).
