      Yes, for example: "mkdir /opt"

      I'm not sure, but "binary" might get automatically
      created when un-tarring the file.

      Yes, only backwards: "ln -s /mnt/opt /opt".
      /opt should not already exist, but /mnt/opt does.

      Not only that, but I expect everytime you do a
      "Firmware" update, it probably wipes that whole
      partition clean. This way your additions remain

      I'm not sure what utilities that are normally on
      Unix/Linux systems are not on the LS, and my LS is
      down right now, but try something like this:

      cd /
      du -kax |sort -nr | more

      If you get errors, try dropping some features (things
      past the "-" switch on some of the commands. The
      versions on the LS might not be full featured.
