Building my First HTPC - Update

So after an evening of downloading distros and more reading I've now got OpenElec and XBMC on two separate USB sticks ready for usage on the new hardware when it arrives tomorrow. Interesting experiences getting them on sticks though, OpenElec was a breeze as it came with the software to do this as part of the distro download however with XBMC I had to use a third party tool called Unetbootin. Tested both of them on my normal desktop, so far so good.

Will post a blow by blow entry of my experience with the installations soon.
