Duh, I just thought of something. I also have a NSLU2. Got it off
Amazon for $120. It allows you to connect an external USB2.0 drive.
There's a number of firmware hacks for it. I used the Debian firmware
and its my new play toy. $120 for the device and another $100 or so
for external USB2 300GB drive. Is *that* cheap enough?
