Source version 2.6.24-3 includes the change required to load the
network driver automatically. The new binary version is built from
2.6.24-5 so it should work.
If you want, you can always backup the flash with
> sudo cat /dev/mtdblock* > backup.img
and then copy this flash to your PC. If anything goes wrong with the
upgrade, you can then use upslug2  to reflash the NSLU2 the image
stored in backup.img. To do this, you would
1. Put the NSLU2 into upgrade mode .
2. On the PC run 'upslug2 -i backup.img'
