      Thanks Martin, which is the current installer? I can't see a
      definitive link. There is a manual TAR file on your site at

      http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/unpack.html

      with 4.0r1 on it and on slug-firmware.net all I can find is the 4.0 code.

      http://www.slug-firmware.net/d-dls.php#download0

      Is there an automatic installer for 4.01 that I'm missing?

      Cheers, Chris.

        If you want to use the installer, you have to download the 4.0 version
        and use the workaround I mentioned above.

            There was 2.6.18-4-ixp4xx and 2.6.18-4-ixp5xx and another which was a
            shorter name but still with ixp4xx in it. Sorry, I am doing this from
            memory! So any idea which one I should install?
