In your original post you indicated that you had the slug setup to use
DHCP.  Would it be possible for you to reflash with the Linksys
firmware, then set a hostname, static IP address, netmask, default
gateway and nameserver and try again with the lenny installer?

I only suggest this because I have never had a failure with an install
with all of these parameters specified, but ISTR my only problem intall
was with trying to use DHCP.
