Help using Jalapeno on Raspberry Pi : Bitcoin

Why won't this mining setup work?

I'm Considering this setup:
Never mined before. I'm assuming I'll need to install Bitcoin-QT & store the block chain on an SD card or USB flash drive (via symlink). Not sure if I can run Bitcoind and bfgminer simultaneously (or even individually!) with only 256 MB of RAM.
Since the Jalapeno will be doing most of the work, I was hoping that this low-power XO laptop (especially if folks are able to mine using a Raspberry Pi!) would work.
So, please tell me why I'd be foolish to try this setup. Looks like I have a little time to play with configuring this little guy while I wait for my Jalapeno to get here...
UPDATE: since I don't need Bitcoin-QT when using a mining pool (see below), I'll first just try installing bfgminer or cgminer using the default OS. If that doesn't work, I'll give Lubuntu a try...

Dr Jally or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the ASIC.

I was a late comer to the bitcoin love, I started mining last summer, nothing major, have never had more than 600Mh/s to my name really... but on a whim I ordered a Jalapeno in late august, and then I tried to put it out of my mind as everyone else fought over if BFL would ever ship or not, etc.... I just figured that worst case, the money was gone really... lo and behold, it arrived about 3 weeks ago, let me briefly share a few things, as some of my tinkering and experiments may benefit others:
This past weekend I opened the little black box of mystery and had some fun:
I plugged everything back in, powered up my host... and noticed my jally was just flashing like crazy and my host couldn't see it. uh-oh. I powered it off, back on, and it was fine. Since then I've powered it off about 10-20 times, and twice it would go into "super fast flash like crazy but not work" mode. Simply unplugging and replugging would solve it. I have not dug into this at all, but I think it's failing to init or pass the boot up tests. There's word around town that you can tweak the firmware to push speed further or reduce the strictness of the tests it does, but I'm happy with what I've got, so I'm leaving it:
Right now
Other than to change coins or work on my host system (now that it's a raspberry pi I don't think I'll be changing it much more), it's been running non-stop at around that rate/temp since the weekend.
Right now my little rPi host is bashing away, with the jally and three block erupters (I know they'll most likely never reach ROI for themselves by themselves, I just wanted to tinker, but still may add a couple more to break 10Gh total just for bonus points), the jally firmware "upgrade" everyone talks about is really designed for one of the other models (the bigger ones), and that's why I think it reports as "BFL 0h" or "BFL 0d" I assume "d" and "h" are the two ASIC spots on the jally board that actually have chips on them in the jally...
I figure all in I'm looking at around... lets say $650 and 90 watts (max) total for ~8.29Gh/s... The erupters really distort my numbers right now, (without them it'd be more like $350 and 80 watts (max) for ~7.3Gh/s)... but again, hashrate is addictive.
The jally power supply has always seemed to run hot to me, even before I pushed the update firmware, so I may try and find a biggebetter quality PS for it, and more erupters will sadly mean I need a new usb hub, as my current one is only rated for 5v 2A, and it has to be close to that with 3 erupters, the pi, and the usb fan. :/ So I guess I've still got more investment to go, but it's just a hobby, I can quit anytime, right?
tl;dr edition (or what I learned, without the story):

So far, the Raspberry Pi has been operational for a continuous 72 days, in which I have had it attempting to CPU mine for bitcoin. This is a pretty useless activity, even on a high end modern CPU, let alone the ARM CPU on the Raspberry Pi, however it has allowed me to test for any heat related issues, and so far so good. The Pi hasn’t run much hotter than 30-40 degrees C, even during the ...
