One possible workaround that'll get around your problem if the ID tags
Create a new user account
Mount your NSLU2 share
Set the iTunes Music Library to point to the NSLU2 share
Select 'Copy files to music library when adding tunes'
Select 'Use iTunes to manage filenames' (?)
Add your mp3s to your library (Apple-O ?)
This should resolve the problem with your mp3's having 'illegal'
characters and copy them over to your NSLU2 in one fell swoop.
iTunes does a pretty good job of producing platform independant
filenames these days.
Name mangling is another option but I don't have access to a useable
box right now to verify the precise details.
