    I am trying to setup my NSLU2 to use Firefly (mt-daap) server and am a Linux newbie, so followed the instructions religiously that come with the ver 6.8 beta of uNSLUng. I managed to flash the firmware following the steps in the readme, rebooted the slug & went to step 3 unslinging to a USB hd. I enabled telnet through the web console and then loading putty started a telnet session. Telnet pulls the following error up:

    Connected to
    Escape character is '^]'.

    NSLU2 login: root
    Login incorrect

    The telnet session allows me type the username, but when I press enter to go to the password line, the keyboard is frozen. I have tried telnet via: putty, WIN XP cmd prompt, Vista cmd prompt & MAC OS X terminal console. All have the same problem. I am trying to type the default "uNSLUng" password that I keep seeing everywhere, but every telnet session won't let me!!! IS there something REALLY stupid that I am not doing/should be doing? Please save me from killing myself!

    P.S. I am able to Redboot & reinstall firmware if that helps too.

    Many thanks,

    You tit!

    haha! So I am a newbie, truly spectacular!
    I am so used to seeing the cursor move as you type, so I assumed it wasn't working! Typed the word in anyway (but carefully, as I was sure I had already done this) and it works.

    Right. Sorry about that folks, just shuffle on, there's nothing to see here!
