I would install debian using the how-to instructions in the files area. My
guess would be that file system checking is turned on and that it does not
complete before the watch dog time times out or something similar. The
debian instructions specify using tune2fs to turn off file checking. You
could also purchase a 160MB drive for about $39.00 after rebate these days
and try that. At least until buffalo figures out what they're doing.
