An amber status led and green network led is actually normal for a
running nslu2 system with debian on it right now (just checked mine).
We haven't sorted out the necessary stuff to turn the status and disk leds

ssh not working of course indicates a problem. Can you ping the system?

I have encountered a similar problem about a half year ago, talked
with Martin Michmayr about it, but we couldn't spot the reason why
this happens. I eneded up using debian armeb unofficial port, but
solving this issue would be a real plus.

Note: I find it very useful that the status led blinks when the NSLU
is powered and running in debian armeb since I have experience seldom
blockage of the router and at those times the blinking stops and is
easy to spot. Still I am not sure if this is a side effect or the
intended behaviour, but is nice.
