well said, mark.

yes, my final configuration is not a result of having observed lots of 
things crash and burn, and then going with a carefully chosen single 
possible working solution. over the last few years, on various machines, 
i've tried lots of setups - single partitions, multiple partitions on 
single drives, separate drives, various filesystems, etc., etc. -- i 
can't recall anything REALLY failing, once configured with reasonable 
care. perhaps what i have now is a bit more stable and/or a bit faster 
than some other things i've tried, but it's pretty hard to point to 
radically better statistics, and there's simply a lot of personal 
"taste" involved here.

modern linux systems are, as mark points out, a pleasure to work with.
