Nope, just on it's own.  It's mounted as /var/lib/mythtv/recordings.  I have
another 60GB drive that I store active bit torrents on, and then a 40GB that
has my system.  My movies/music are stored on an external USB 2.0 HD.  It's
quite a mess. Either way, its at least safe enough to where I may lose one
major component, but I'll never lose all my media at once.  I figure this
way my main system and files I wish to store long term are isolated from
drives that are read/written to extensively.  Come to think of it, now that
I'm pumping all this data through the machine, having my swap file on the
same physical drive as the my Linux install may not be as good of an idea.
