I also use a 256MB memory stick. The problem with these is, that you cant use the NSLU to create the partitions.
Instead you have to manually partition the stick.
I believe from what I learned in searching on how to unsling to a memory stick that you only have to do that if the stick is smaller than 256MB. I can’t say for sure, however, since I used a 1GB stick.
Yep. This just happens for devices smaller than 512MB, since the way the Linksys firmware eats up lots of space for the /conf partition which is actually wasted.
So just create 1 small ext2 partition, and one large ext3 partition. one also needs a small swap partition, which should really be dactivated and the .ext3flash file touched.
I have unslung to a 256MB stick on port2, and a 250G NTFS harddisk on port1. I use a 512MB swap file on there. NTFS performance isnt really snappy, but its ok. I too think unslung 6.8 beta is kinda slow and unstable, but NTFS support was a must for me.
