      Quick Questions:
      Latest firmware would be? (4.20b)
      What is the size make model of your drive
      If you unplug the drive and boot the linksys can you ping it?

      The reason i ask is i have a 300gb Western Digital (WD3000) drive
      that i've tried to unsling the 4.20b to and the thing acts like it's
      gonna boot but somewhere during the boot it just stops and i can't
      see it on the network. (my current work around is to let the slug
      boot then attach the drive, i loose the ability to add packages but
      i have access to my data)

      I'm in the process of backing up my data off the drive to reformat
      to try to load the 4.20b again (tested with a 100gb WD drive and it
      worked, system booted off drive and packages could be installed)

      hoping its a simple issue like formating with the new bios.. but i'm
      thinking it may be a large drive issue giving the built in linux a
      problem. I don't have a serial port installed on my slug so i can't
      see the error when it stops. If anyone else has seen this and has a
      fix please post it.
