We now have initial NSLU2 support in OpenWRT kamikaze pre1.

to build an image and test it.
I have tested both the pre1 image and the latest image on the NSLU2 and
also on an IOMega NAS100d.
We intend to put forward OpenWRT as the distro of choice for those that
want to install all packages on the internal flash of the NSLU2, and
have no external storage at all. Once it has passed alpha testing, we

You may also be able to install optware packages (the ddwrt feed) on
OpenWRT/NSLU2, but we haven't tested that yet.
Whilst this is still in an alpha-testing phase, please ask any questions

official OpenWRT release goes out which includes NSLU2 support, then we
will move that support to the OpenWRT mailing lists for questions that
are not specific to the NSLU2.
