Sadly, there are no pre-installed Firefly devices like the Freecom FSG or better the INTRADISK with Twonky on the market. So you have to put a lot of time and energy to get the systems running. And a risk is still there.
In Australia at least, there are a couple of companies offering pre-configured NSLU2+drive+Firefly. See http://www.anymedia.com.au/products_sb_NAS_Option.htm and also http://www.frequency.com.au/sales/music&audio/ (about 3/4 the way down the page). If such a pre-installed device isn’t available where you are, it would seem to be a missed marketing opportunity for an enterprising shop (and the profit would on the surface appear to be pretty good on such a pre-installed box too vs just selling the separate components as they might otherwise be doing).
