My home file server died and it's time to celebrate as I have a new project!
I purchased the Lacie 500G Home Mini about a year ago. The SATA 500G seagate drive has died. I've always loved this little box but not so much the internal software.
I see this now as the opportunity to play with an embedded distro of linux. However, I'm really outside my comfort zone here. Based on the specs: 400Mhz processor with 64MB of ram, I know I can't really run much here. But, again, this is a learning experience and I'm ready to jump in.
I'm looking for suggestions of how to begin? How does one install an OS when the box has no console. Do I mount to another machine and install from a host OS?
