RE: [nslu2-linux] Strange situation
Since I've got one "on order" as the saying goes, I was going to ask that
same question that our correspondent did. Of course I havent selected a
disk box for a disk, but that's my next big question.
However, is anyone besides me watching the traffic on the new Linux-USB list
on Vger? It seems that the issues concerning sound from a USB device and the
thing, is still being decided.
