      in fact you cannot use the firmware-images directly because there is
      no apservd-process running on your kuro...the firmware updater simply
      won`T find your box. but you could unzip the image.dat from openlink
      or freelink (for the LS1) with the password from
      http://linkstationwiki.org/Main/FAQ.....or to make it easier for you:
      NFM_TUPSBHFNFM_TUPSBHF .....(image.dat is a password-protected
      zip-archive)....then you get a tmpimage.tgz.....which is a archive of
      the filesystem......if you untar it on / (=/dev/hda1), then you will
      have openlink or freelink on your kurobox....the only difference is
      that you are running the kuro-kernel in the flash.....

      best regards
