    With R63 firmware, it is possible to use a hub on USB Port 1 to connect more than one HD. This has been reported to work for NTFS drives. I've tried it with FAT32 flash drives. I'm not sure about multiple ext3 drives

    A mix of FAT32 and ext3 drives can not be used through the hub. The functionality of the NSLU2 is affected if these drives are mixed.

    No one has commected on the reliability of using multiple drives attached to the one port though.

    There is no SSL security functionality implemented for FTP in the R63 firmware.

    You can probably upload and download torrents, but it might be very, very easy to overload the NSLU2 with too many connections.

    One thing.. Will the NSLU2 format the disk auto?

    Formating to ext3 is manual only. There is a warning above the button that it will destroy any data already on the disk.
