Thanks Ron. I actually decided to cut bait on the memory stick idea and opted for reformatting the hard drive.

I have successfully unslung and run /opt/etc/init.d/S60mt-daapd. Now a couple additional problems:

-I can’t copy any mp3 files in my new directory /share/hdd/data/public/mp3/ using explorer – it says that access is deined…my guess is that in order to get into the admin folder I used the NSLU2 username and password, but at this point I probably need to somehow login using the root username and password. Not sure how though.

-I don’t see mt-daap running in iTunes or access it through the config address.

Thanks again for your help and advice.

if you set a password for root, you’ll have to ssh in using something like putty, I believe. Otherwise, you can telnet into the machine.

Once you are telnetted in, you should be able to do something like:

chmod 777 /share/hdd/data/public/mp3

and that will set that folder to be world readable and writable. That should get you running. You might want to play with permissions later to tighten them down, if you need to in your environment.
