      A typical NSLU2 out of box automatically sets itself with the IP of
      192.168.1.77, but if it's not showing in the router status pages I believe
      there was some sort of red boot option if I remember correctly that's meant
      to be for recovery of a near-dead system. Can also use network mapping
      tools like Fing to see if it can be found via Ping.

        I'd forgotten that it by default uses dhcp to get its address.

        So now I have its MAC address, but telnet is locked out, and
        ssh wont let me in as I can't remember the passwords, so its flash it time.
        I'm not sure which to use, Debian is now too big , unslung or slougos , not sure
