According to the Linksys knowledge base, FAT32 is
supported for flash drives, but unfortunately
hotplugging doesnt seem to be..
Perhaps a cgi could be written to do the mount/umount
thing? With the news of the snapstream build working
on the box though, unless the hardware is crippled
somehow I wouldnt expect it will be long now until
hotplugging and other USB drivers will start working.
A USB Flash disk with the FAT/FAT32 file system can be
connected to the Network Storage Link (NSLU2). The
only limitation is that the NSLU2 User and Group
permissions cannot be applied.
Only Disk drives that have been formatted using the
NSLU2 will be able to use the user and group
Connecting the USB Flash Disk:
Make sure that the NSLU2 is turned off.
Connect the USB Flash disk to the NSLU2 using the Disk
2 USB Slot.
Turn on the NSLU2. Wait for the Ready/Status light to
Ensure that Disk 2 LED on the front of the device is
lit up. If it is not, check to make sure your USB
Flash Disk is connected firmly into place.
