I understand Matt, but over here the problem is the cost of the SSD.
The Server as a whole costs only $350 so it is not possible to get an
SSD of $100 sanctioned :-(

So I guess rsyncing / from one Disk to another will work ( given that
/usr, /var, /home and Data are mirrored )  ? how do I update the boot
code on the secong disk? Also since I am following dfly development I
guess if I dont use mirror-stream I can have a backup of the old
system in the second disk just in case I get a surprise during
system/pkgsrc update?

Thanks :-)
