Been using the Sony usb 2x floppy disk drive to make to make pxe boot disks. Faster than the standard usb floppy. Yes, some of us still use floppies when you do not have nic cards that support ipxe scripts.
Looks like the Chumby web site is back up again!
If you are only using command line systems, you have to use the keyboard as part of copying file method.
But there is actually, sort of an easier method. You will need to have the following installed on the systems: openssh-server, fuser, and sshfs for starters.
The easiest way to set up a share is to go to the browser and use the sftp protocol (vs ftp or http) to point to the share. Notice there are not shares set up yet. and again the file we want to copy is servers.txt.
Now you should see the share in the lower left hand side window.
Now you want to drag and drop the file.
Ever copy code into vim and realize that the line numbers were also copied. Here is a quick easy way to get rid of the line numbers.
We want to remove the first 5 characters from every line so then we need to use the normal option:
Press return and the line numbers are gone!
A simple table using html

bootfloppy ==> local web server ==> slackware site (ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.1) ==> install
Local web server needs initrd.img and bzImage in an accessible directory. Dowloaded directly from Slackware. You could use the Slackware site locations instead.
Used a pxeboot floppy to point to the web server to get the install started. Of course, you can go to Romomatic.net to make the boot floppy. Use your own script, but this was the template to use for the script.
Amazing what can be done with the NSLU2, A raid setup for the little unit!
Rice, spinach, tuna, and Mandarin oranges for sweetness.
