      Is the 250 GB disk a "native" formated disk or a full ext3 disk?

      The linksys software does a lot of magic in mounting and sharing
      the devices. But unfortunately this magic doesn't always work as
      we want it to do.

      Please have a look at:
      http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Unslung/R63DiskBehaviour

      I would format one disk native and one disk full ext3 and write
      a script to do the setup for that disk:
      http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Unslung/NonNativeDiskMount

      An other solution is a FAT disk but there are other disadvantages
      to that setup as well.
