Didn't work very well initially: had to reflash the Linksys firmware and 
then use the upgrade from the web panel - this is on a NSLU2 which has 
been flashed several times, however :)

That did work well on the other Slug, cross-grading from DebianSlug but 
the LED's appear to be stuck - at least one is permanently red :( 
Will be reflashed once I'm sure that this procedure works fine. 
I may wait for 2.18-4 for the free Ethernet driver, however :)

All the best - many thanks for all your hard work and personal help.
