Oops - I hadnt realised you had succeeded with running the SlimServer code
on 'the hard disk' - now that's a great solution - I had intended the
Buffalo as simply a NAS fileserver - and wondered it it worked OK and
daisychained drives.

Ah, sorry I wasn't clear.

The LaCie Ethernet Disk is really a mini PC in a nice looking case with
Windows XP Embedded and some nice administrative tools installed.
SlimServer will run directly on the device, making it an elegant
solution. The biggest downside of the unit is that it's 19" wide, but
if you've got the space, it's nice. Also, it's got USB and Firewire
ports on the back, so you can expand it inexpensively with external
drives.
