Has anyone tried using the LinkSys NSLU2 (aka, the "slug") as a 
server in a small demo cluster?
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSLU2 for more info)
Seems that people get 5 MB/sec sorts of speeds with NFS or FTP. While 
no ball of fire speed wise, it is an inexpensive widget that might be 
handy for a "toy" cluster to serve as a boot server.
