Hmmm... Drive in my home server died, and modern Linuxes no longer support Via EPIA devices. Rethinking my network config.

If Ed can get Linux to boot on a Tandy with an 80286, surely you can get the Via EPIA to do something! Personally, I'd just build a new server or buy a new laptop and use my current laptop as a sever.

FYI: My Linksys E3000 router running TomatoUSB shares printers and USB hard drives in addition to acting as a router, Wifi hotspot, and gigabit hub. Pretty good for a $50 low-power device!

Most of the new routers appear to be able to share USB hard drives. I may go that way, I don't have a router for the shop that'll handle the new "push both buttons simultaneously" security risk WiFi authentication scheme, so if a new WiFi router is in order, hanging USB drives off it seems totally reasonable.
