Oh and to answer this one, the common practice is for the external PCMCIA 
(or LS120 for RE-1.0 users :P) to contain the install-media image only. 
You only want to leave it inserted if you want to install new code, 
overwriting everything that existed before. Otherwise the RE runs 
primarily off of its internal compact flash, with a small laptop harddrive 
(aka the travel-deathstar) being used for logging, crash dumps, and 
optional backup images of your compact flash in case of failure.
