Got my HD in yesterday, plugged them both in to my Vista box and did the backup and the mfscopy and all went well. I just used the quick start guide and left the custom Linux swap at 128, however I thought about changing it to 256. What exactly does that get me? I know what a swap file is, but does the machine spend that much time swapping? I guess it'd be nice to know how much RAM the box has in it and to be able to get some performance stats over a typical day to see how the CPU and RAM are handling the load. Overall, it couldn't have been easier unless Spike came over and did it for me. You're welcome by any time Spike - beers are on me.
