Re: Debian install on NSLU2 restarts when I copy lots of data

I've been playing with Debian on my NSLU2 for a few days now. With the
help of the wiki and the excellent install guide at
<http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/install.html>, I've got it up and
running, and I've set up a Samba share which I can see from my Windows
machine. However, when I try to copy more than a few megs at once from
the Windows machine to the NSLU's share, the NSLUs reboots itself!
There's nothing immediately obvious in the logfiles in /var/log; I've
looked at messages, syslog, kern.log and debug. Is there anywhere else
I should be looking for clues about why this is happening?
This is usually due to a bus-powered hard drive sucking too much power
from the NSLU2, or some other deficiency in the power supply to the NSLU2.
If you have a hard drive connected (as opposed to a flash stick), then
make sure it's externally powered.
