      Note link of /var to /mnt/ram/var - don't mess with this unless you
      know more than I do - bad things happen you brick the Linkstation
      and have to reflash firmware and loose all the data on your
      harddrive!

      The web interface uses perl 5.6.1.

      The linux is pretty functional with all the usual things working out
      of the box (grep, vi, ...).

      Lots of ppc binary rpms can be found and at least some work:

      ftp://194.199.20.114/linux/yellowdog/releases/champion-
      1.2/ppc/YellowDog/RPMS/

      or
