      I think the name should be based on the targeted functionality. Is
      it going to be a real SAN device? Then it should support ftp, pam,
      nfs, and the print q functionality would be nice too...

      Why not call it, the NSLU-Cubed (thats one better tha NSLU-Squared)

      Do I get the corny prize?
