Let me know how that holds up when your system grows to something like
mine which handles recording 3 HD streams, 2 SD streams, playback of
one HD stream, commflagging and transcoding all at the same time. My
60GB system disk is just fine for all that. I doubt I could do all
that video plus run mysql on the same disk. Planning ahead can save
yourself a whole lot of problems in the future.
