Building a cheap and very compact Linux NAS appliance
Hacking the Western Digital Mybook II to transform this elegant external hard drive into a bare-bones, extremely flexible hardware platform, in a revival of what we did with the Linksys WRT54G a few years ago. Intermediate system skills (particularly Perl and Shell) recommended, along with imagination and the desire to have fun! In addition, Brian DeLacey will provide just a brief neutral introduction to the SheevaPlug, as a transition/connection to the next meeting where it will be discussed in more depth.
Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux "Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.
