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, cocciag
