The default installation makes both drives into one volume.  The target 
had Centos 4.5 installed that way and I just let F7 Live do the same.  
But it's not a problem since I can sftp the files from this computer, 
ftp and ssh always seem to work out of the box and I have already 
extracted my favorite text editor from this box via ftp, "e3em," all 12k 
of it!
