I think the two key questions are going to be stability and how well the
USB interface works for the 2T disk (presumably that's what you are

I have a Soekris net5501, but the USB controller (ohci/ehci) has been
troublesome.  This could be a software issue, but it is seeming like the
ehci is perhaps encountering PCI bus starvation and then getting cranky.
Plus, the net5501 is $300, not $100, and bigger.

I know people are running NetBSD on the SheevaPlus, but I don't recall
seeing comments about big disks and USB.   But presumably a USB2.0
interface should support such usage under BSD or Linux, assuming the
chipset doesn't have odd issues.

If you're ready to throw in $50, you might just buy one for $129 and try
it :)
