I was running the kurobox kernel on my PPC LS for awhile. I run a
Debian file system on the hard drive. I never got the USB ports to

that the kernel worked great. I was able to burn CD's with my USB
CDROM, get IP filtering to work (which then enabled a DHCP server to
I think the Kurobox kernel has telnet enabled in "EM" (mini-system in
flash memory) mode, where as with the Linkstation you can only run the
software updater in this mode.
As far as the rest of the Kurobox filesystem, I don't think there is
any great advantage to it, and you will loose the LS web Interface
with the Kurobox.
