I'm not sure of the technical issues invloved, but I've been 
"dangerously dedicateing" the drives on almost all of my installs.
I've been running that way on at least two major servers and 
a bunch of smaller routes and have never had a problem. It 
comes in handy for the small hard drives on the 386 boxes I turn
into routers.
