new toy

i want a new toy!  looking fore some NAS device. either a maxtor
shared storage, or a simpletech simpleshare. the latter has 8MB flash
and a JTAG port in case one messes up the firmware. it has a simple
2-image TRX firmware. the maxtor has 2MB flash and a 2-stage boot:
small image in flash and larger image on harddisk. it might be nice to
keep things separate from HD. the simpletech should run openwrt too,
wich might be a better choice.

i don't really have time to muck with this too much, but it might be
interesting as an exercise in 'how not to shoot yourself in the foot'.
