An update: I found a new Ralink mini-PCI card (RT2561 based) which
worked just fine for about £15
[Sparklan WL-850R Ralink 11G board from OxfordTec]
Following a couple of false starts, I've got Lenny on the N2100.
(It definitely helps to ssh in twice and use the second session to open
the shell to fix the ntpdate / time problem as detailed in Martin
Michlmayr's page at www.cyrius.com).
Empirically, it appears to be running fairly cool - I suspect the newer
SATA drives are pushing out less heat than older drives.
Base system + build essential + rsync + apache there so far: mediatomb
possibly to follow. [Apparently, on Windows at least, you could at one
time tell the iTunes software to accept music from a shared source -
hence the rationale behind the way that Thecus originally did this. I'm
not sure that the latest iTunes does this.]
If not, it turns into a small, low powered Debian mirror server (which
might not be a bad thing to take to any conferences - the second GB port
could be used for PXE booting :) )
All best and thanks for the encouragement thus far,
