[Rack] Reformat Tahoe Node

I'd like to reformat the Tahoe node in preparations to merge the parts of 
that machine with Pony.  Is there anything on the machine that I need to 
save?

My plan to keep the power use in the rack to a minimum involves keeping us 
down to one reasonably powerful box.  My plan is to setup a minimal 
virtual machine OS and then copy Pony into a VM.  We can also have a Tahoe 
node VM.

I'll be moving the 8GB of ram and 6T of disk over to the VM server.  I'll 
possibly move the 2G of ram and one of the disks out of Pony and make it 
into a decent desktop PC for people use instead of that crappy old shuttle 
box.
