Cheap Linksys NSLU2

I snagged a couple of the Linksys NSLU2 network attaced storage servers for a little over $30 a piece at Office Depot. They were sitting on a clearance table, staring at me with sad eyes. I hadn’t heard of the device but for that price, I snagged them both. It’s a good thing I did. The NSLU2 runs Linux and the sourcecode is included on the install CD. I’ve found some great hacking resources and that will make it a breeze to set up more services like NFS. Now it’s looking like I need to buy a RAID hard drive enclosure.
