Thanks for the help everyone, my NAS is now running Debian Etch.
However, I can't get Avahi to work, the initial announce works but any
subsequent queries fail: it appears that multicast packets are being
dropped by the network driver.  Has anyone else seen this, and if so are
there any workarounds or solutions?
