shouldn't be too hard.

damn small linux is 2.4 kernel based and can run off usb. so ps2 linux also should.

i've been using 2.6 for too long, so i don't really remember how to find out where your usb is mapped on 2.4 kernel with devfs.

You're right, shouldn't be hard at all. If a PC can do it, a PS2 should be able to do it no prob. It's too bad about the whole 2.4/2.6 thing, if they hadn't changed the entire kernel between the two, you would probably have it all coded and ported by now. Shucks.
