Subscribers to my del.icio.us bookmarks [and I’d be shocked if anyone is subscribed to it but me] know that I’ve been looking at a Linksys NSLU2 for over three months. Last night, I finally broke down and got one, with an 80GB Maxtor USB 2.0 HD to go with it. Why now? Well, I want to re-format this machine in the near future, drop it back to Win98 [more in keeping with its RAM capabilities than is XP], and swap the HDs around in it [pulling a 6GB drive for use in my parents’ old machine when I get that up and running, replacing it with a 40GB drive]. I want to use the NSLU2 as a ghetto NAS, and … it’ll do.

  1. I’ve been fairly satisfied with my NSLU2, with only one exception. It won’t recognize my drive on the second USB port in the web interface. I haven’t flashed it with the latest firmware, though (as I noticed they finally updated it again). Hopefully they fixed this. Otherwise, it works fine over SMB.
