> a) create /, /usr, /var, /tmp as Raid1.  Then use the rest of the disk on both disks to be put into an LVM volume and use that for /video.  In this scenario, if a disk dies my system is still fine, but I'm going to lose about half of my recordings
I have been using 2 330GB drives in gentoo for around 8 months.
I raid 0 /tmp. Then raid 1 /boot and raid 1 / separately. Then create
a swap partition on each drive. And then create a vg for each drive
(/dev/vg0 and /dev/vg1). On each vg I create a lvm for my video
storage and use storage groups to use multiple video stores
(/dev/vg0/mythstore /dev/vg1/mythstore).
