> hows your "everything but the kitchen sink" going??I'm a long ways off. I really don't want to pioneer something that
could "brick" my LS if I do something wrong. I need to see how the
Kurobox people are doing with compiling and installing kernels again.
Last I checked, someone had written a kernel module that you can use
to "test" kernels without having to install it in flash first. A real
breakthrough. Then I either want to get away from the Monta-vista
kernel completly or at least be able to install a much new version of
the the Linux kernel because I don't trust the aging 2.4.17 kernel.
It has some security issues which prevents me from revealing the the
nice web page and public FTP server I have running on it to everyone.

some reason. I also haven't tested the input capability (which of
course you would need for your VoIP). There might be a mode where you
can make the input jack function as an output jack for two more audio
channels. I have no idea if it is in this mode or not yet.

his MIPS based LS-II did it all without removing the hard drive. You
might check with him for details.

and restore the LS's original OS using the PC based factory FW
installer/upgrader. The problem is that I've never done it so I'm not
going to write a how-to that pretends as if I have.
