      That just means that the Linkstations hard drive can’t be read from another computer if attached directly to it. And as the kuro box uses a normal Linux ext2 file system you have to fix the file system prior to install the kuro Linux or it wouldn’t be able to read its own partition…

      I've just ordered a Buffalo Linkstation 250Gb drive and am interested
      in converting it to a Kurobox; however, I've read in the HOWTO:-

      'You will first need to gain root access on your LinkStation? to fix
      the ext2 superblocks modified by Buffalo to prevent the hard drive
      from being mounted by any other linux system than the official firmware.'

      Does this REALLY mean that the LinkStation cannot be mounted as a
      remote network drive by other Linux boxes in my network until the
      superblocks are fixed? How strange...

      Can anyone confirm that they've got their LinkStation to be mounted by
      another Linux box over their network?

      Many thanks,
