….With the nslu2, you do well to format it the way the nslu2 wants to — to ext3. You can use ntfs or something else, but performance is hideous.

As far as the process, it’s really well documented, and there are jillions of people here who have done it that can give pointers and advise.

I’m ordering one today.

Not bad for $99. And I have two external USB 2.0 drives I’ve pickup up over the years.

One is 80GB, the other is 250GB.

I’ll format the 80GB using ‘ext3’. I’ve never used that system before. Anything to be aware of? My Win XP machine won’t exlode trying to access it?:)
