Good point!  I will double check this next time I restart the box.  It's
showing 32GB of usable storage space, so I'd guess RAID 1.

That's an excellent suggestion, thanks.  I have a couple of 147GB (IIRC)
HP cartridges going spare, so it's certainly worth a test running the
video storage on these.  Presumably RAID0 is the best scenario for these
drives - I don't really need data security on the storage partition.
