[20060307] NetBSD on the Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 (NSLU2, AKA "slug") Disk Drives
In his "NetBSD for the Linksys NSLU2 (a.k.a. "Slug")" README, Steve Woodford writes: ``The NSLU2 (Network Storage Link for USB 2.0 Disk Drives) is a small, cheap NAS device consisting of an Intel IXP420 (Xscale) CPU, a 10/100mbit Ethernet port, and two USB 2.0 ports. It has 32MB of SDRAM and 8MB of Flash memory, and runs RedBoot/Linux out of the box.''

Given that the NSLU2 devices are available fairly cheap at around $80US, the sound like a sexy addition to the local network. Now adding a second network device, e.g. via USB, would make it a sexy alternative for a DSL router.
