Re: unslinging question...
- Hi Chris,
you are right in all three points:
1a. YES, If you have unslung your NSLU2 it is still operating like a
"normal" Linksys device. You can change this behavior by diversion
scripts, but it is not a "must"
1b. YES, you can flash the original firmware "back" if you don't like
2. "It would act like I had just installed the unslung firmware,
correct?" => YES
When using NO drive or a NEW drive it behaves just like befor doing
the /sbin/unsling command. So all modifications made by you are
lost. The "conf"-Partition is a normal ext3 partition, so you can take
an image with "partimage" (linux) or Ghost/Acronis/whatever (Windows)
Hope this helps
