To make this easier:
1. Put the disk in your computer, boot Linux, and become root.
2. Create a new parition table on the new disk using fdisk.
Use "fdisk /dev/<your device>", select option "o" from the menu,
and then select option "w".
3. Place the new disk back in your LS.
4. Turn on the LS, and wait until it fails to boot.
Make sure you can ping it at the default address (192.168.11.150).
5. Perform a firmware update using the Buffalo firmware updater.
6. Copy your data to the LS.
You can either put the disk back in your computer, and use the cp -R
command to copy your data back on, or leave the disk in and just copy
your data over the network.
If you use cp, you need to mount the data partition on each disk first.
The data partition is the third partition on the disk (the largest).
You can use fdisk -l to look at the partition table.
