I will certainly need some hand holding to get thru this to the
of having the NSLU up and running my media to my Streamium.
For a point of reference, I am refering to this document on how to
install TwonkyVision into the NSLU. It appears to be a little out
of date but should be basically the same except to use a newer
version of UnSlung?
1. If I purchase the Linksys NSLU2 and a Maxtor 250 GB onetouch USB
external drive....will that be a good start?
2. OK, then next I wire the NSLU2 to my Linksys router(WRT54GS) and
now I will be able to connect to it from my WINXP PC. I read
somewhere that I should not connect the drive yet?
Now in instructions it says(page to the bottom, Jan 22, 2005 Update:
It is much easier now to get TwonkyVision running. Here are some
simple steps to get you going, the information on performing the
steps is easy to find.
1. Purchase TwonkyVision media server.
Ok, I have done that.
2. Install Unslung firmware
So, do I access the NSLU via a web browser and install the Unslung
firmware according to the directions for the NSLU? This would be
like updating the firmware for my Linksys router?
Which one to download here?
Then unzip and the file will be ready for firmware upgrade?
3. Create /unslung directory (if doesn't exist) (Optional -
create /share/hddvfat directory for FAT32 hard drive use) on the
What is this directory for? The firmware is being updated into the
flash memory, right?
How do I create these directories? Do I connect with my IE6 and
somehow edit the NSLU directory?
Do I need to format the drive in any way? If so, how and with what?
4. Create /opt/twonk directory
Any help with the above will get me going, but I will not be buying
anything until it appears I can do this.. :)
