Now things get interesting, /library could be setup as a broken mirror,
one half of a raid 1 set... plug second drive in, add to mirror,
replicate.... If you in the the past have seen DMC's live installer
discussed on the fedora livecd list, that is where I'd like to go...

Think I like it... Since /library will be on an USB disk, /var, /tmp,
and swap should most likely be there also.  
I think fstab should be able to handle the setup upon boot. 

OK lets backup a second, I'm thinking that the OS could be on a SD
disk/NAND with an external USB harddrive holding most of the write
intensive directories. thoughts?
