      Current Setup
      Unslung 6.8 beta
      USB2: WD MyBook 500GB, primary drive formated in EXT3 using the NSLU web
      USB1: HP Deskjet 3745 (-:

      I did not have any problems formatting the drive. I access the files mainly
      through ftp or samba, so I don't can't tell you about the speed of the web
      interface access.
