Quick update, currently building my HP Micrososerver by installing the 'live' spin of XBMC Downloads | XBMC
I've used the supplied 250GB disk for /boot, /, and swap partitions.
The firmware mirroring facility is 'fake raid' and needs OS drivers so I gave up on that idea. I'm building a software-mirrored LVM volume from the Ubuntu installer (the XBMC live distro is based on Ubuntu 10.04) using two 2GB disks I managed to get for 'only' twice the retail price after the floods.
I was going to get a bluetooth keyboard but I found this: Official XBMC Remote for Android | XBMC
So now I can control the XBMC server with my phone! Works like a charm from the live boot, so that's cool.
The LVM build is taking forever, but it sounds like it's busy....
Looking forward to getting it up and running.
