its not going to be on a device without a console, if my data is that
important, I want to be able to get in there when I have to to fix
things and bring it back from the dead. My preference is always where
possible a generic boot system that can be replaced completely, and the
data on raid drives that could be put in a completely new system and
brought back to life if necessary. I don't see the nslu2 as fitting the
bill for this at all - its niche is a low power solution thats pretty
much disposable when it breaks, and focus should be on backup of
whatever matters, and ease of just dumping it back into new hardware
