    I see the NSLU2 in XP My Network Places, but when I double click it, I get the web interface, not any folders. I try to set up share, but when I put in \\nslu2\sharename it says path not found.
    Any ideas? Any good info on setting this up?

    You need to setup shares in the setup interface. In a browser window type (unless you have changed the IP address) and you need to setup users and passwords, and setup shares for the users. If you create a share using the same loggin and password you use in XP, you need to reboot the computer. Then goto "My Network Places" and click on "View Workgroup Computers", the nslu2 should showup...click on it and you will see the shares....right click on the share you want to use and pick "Map Network Drive", tell it what drive letter you want it to use and then in "My Computer" it will show up as the drive letter you picked....from then on you can use it just like it was any other hard drive.
