Going OT here but just to offer a different solution.
I have an eeePC 701 w/ 4GB internal SSD and 8GB SD card. Since I don't
keep anything important on my eeePC I tried LVM striping but using all
the 4GB SSD and the same size LV on the 8GB card. I put "/" on it and
then created /boot and swap on the rest of the 8GB SD card. It seems a
little faster and was fun to experiment on a non-critical system.
