Well, I still need to get you that non-working Firewire card.  But
yes, I suppose I could drop another card into that machine.

But I still want to get a frontend/TV for my guest room so when I
do that I might as well just use it as another backend, too.  I presume
the Dell Studio Hybrid isn't an energy hog?
