Dear all, I have read a lot of posts and tuto here and there, but things are still not clear for me. I have a HD formated with Fat32 full of data that i don't want to erase or reformat. I want to make these data available in my lan. I don't mind setting security on files/folders, I just need to be able to read and write them from any device on my lan. From what I have understand, - Fat32 is supported with latest official firmware - the nslu2 absolutely needs a filesystem build on ext3 to store its config - the official firmware isn't able to format drives < 10 GB - i can set the partitions needed on the flash drive with a computer and some partitionning software (Paragon Partition Manager 8 ?) - to finish the process, i need to access nslu2 via telnet to replace fdisk with a dummy file, so the utility will only copy needed files on the flashdrive and won't attempt to partition and format it. - eventualy, i could "optimize" the swap partion usage - once done, the nslu2 will be able to boot correctly with the flash drive and nothing else - in some cases, if I try to boot the nslu2 with the hd and the flash drive, the nslu2 won't work, because it will try to find its conf on the hd. Knowing all this, I plan to set up my nslu2 with a 512MB FlashDrive, and once done and working, adding my existing fat32 hd Here are the questions : - Do I need an unofficial firmware to gain a telnet access to the nslu2 ? - Is there a way to solve the problem of the startup with both hd and stick plugged ? - Does the usb flashdrive needs to be on port 1 or 2 or doesn't matter ? - Do i need to firstly flash the nslu2 with unslug ? will it be easier ? Thank you for your help !
