Default RM WHS

So this is the start of my build log for my 2U Rackmount WHS build. Here is what will be going into this initially.

Norco RPC-230 RM Chassis
Antec Earthwatts 380W
2x WD 2TB Caviar GP Storage Drives (later expand to 4)
80GB Sata Boot Drive
Promise TX4 Sata Controller
Asus ATOM D510 Board (passive Cooling)
Crystalfontz 20x4 LCD Module
WHS V.1
2x Noctua 80mm Ultra Quiet Fans

Today i received my first bit of hardware. The LCD Module if you can believe it which was ordered, shipped and arrived before my NCIX order even shipped out. Unfortunately i can't test it until the mobo shows up. But expect pictures later.

I want to see this, I just put my WHS hardware in a case. For OS, are going to Vail Beta ? Or the older version of WHS ? I am wondering myself, especially with the drop of drive extender...
