      It is possible. There was another "funny" think I noticed over the
      weekend but didn't have time to dig into. I plugged a hub into the box,
      and then a flash drive into the hub. No problem. It mounted normally.
      Then I plugged another flash drive into the hub to see if I could at least
      manually have two mounted. At this point the LED on the second flash
      drive continuously blinked instead of a steady on like normal. Then
      neither disk was available, but if I recall, the first was still shown to
      be mounted.

      I'm pretty sure that the source we have for the box is incomplete. I know
      that thttp has been modified, but the source tree provided is virgin.
      In addition, the kernel ID tag you get at boot time does not match the id
      in the kernel Makefile provided in the snapgear tree.

      Looking forward to your input.
