My partitioning and organizing of the 2 HDs I have in my box is rather 
ad-hoc and 'interesting'. The 300Gb I mentioned in my mail was a 300Gb 
external that I'm considering getting for the purpose of periodically 
backing up my mythbox and all its contents (my system contains 1*160Gb and 
1*200Gb Western Digital harddisks.

I've started considering such a device since it occured to me in the event 
of a failure, besides losing the large quantity of irreplacable data (music 
and video) in there, the quite obscene amount of time I've spent setting the 
system up would also be lost. If that were to happen, pathetic as this may 
seem, I would most likely cry. A lot. ;-)
