Setting up a Linksys NSLU2 with Debian

In case you've been out of the loop for awhile there is a nice little network device called NSLU2 put out by Linksys. It is not the perfect device nor the end all solution to having a small machine that can run multiple USB drives as well as other USB accessories however it is cheap and has a large following which helps if you're not one of those types that likes to spend long weekends figured out things. Even if you do atleast you can easily get the operating system installed and get moving on to the business at hand.

As of right now there are a few issues with the default Debian installer so the manual method must be used however it is fairly simple. The first order of business is to download the Debian image to install on the NSLU2. Finally just head over to Martin's How-To and you should be up in running in no time.

Best wishes.
