As I did not have a 2GB SD card lying around, I decided to look up if it was possible to boot from a combination of an SD card and USB. From my readings, it appears that this is a good idea too. SD Cards have a very limited life, it appears.
After digging through several tutorials, I found this one that’ll work well on Linux. I’ve yet to try it out (waiting for Rasbian to download), but I’m pretty sure this one will work.
