I setup a SheevaPlug for a 24/7 server at home. Running Linux Gentoo 2.6.31

Kernel boots from NAND, Gentoo root is on a class4 SDHC 8GB card (~3.4GB). Eth0 connects to router and USB has a 120GB 2'5 external disk.

Functions:
- NFS shares (web folder, share folder, distfiles from gentoo, torrent files, films, ...). (6 PC)
- Samba for sharing films to a small wifi media center (nice!).
- rsyncd for syncing portage tree.
- rTorrent
- web server
- postgresql server
- subversion server
- ssh server
- dynamic dns update.
- dnsmasq (for dhcp, router lacks some functions, especially for give static private IP and discard /etc/hosts in other computers)
- screen (not a service but quite usefull for maintaining a open shell on the plug)

Still thinking:
- squid
- ntp server
- JRE (strange issue with Gentoo)

I have a very similar setup, mine has a 3.5" 1TB USB hard drive hooked to it. I think I'm using mysql. I'm using Transmission instead of rTorrent. Which webserver are you using? I had never used lighttpd before, but quite like it's small footprint now. I've got MediaTomb installed, to share the media I have on the 1TB drive with my uPnP devices (PS3 to be specific). And I always have a remote X session going when my desktop is booted, I run an app called "conky" that lets me monitor all of the system stats.
Oh, and I'm running Debian Lenny off my SD card, I think I'm only using 1.5gb of the 8gb card so far. My kernel is in NAND.. 2.6.32.2
I quite like my little plug. Smiley

Everything you have, except mysql instead of postgres. Squid for ssh tunneling stuff from work. ccx stream for xbmc and a few other things.

I don't need X installed. I use apache (still looks quite light for me, and more familiar). For monitoring I manually look to logs, top, iotop, htop
I also have a swap part. of 300MB rarely used.

My gentoo has 3 GB (portage tree, kernel sources, development environment, ...) takes a bit more of space. And no X.
