IMHO, for linux users that want ffs rootfs, there is an easier way to
install the slug. No need for NFS or another NetBSD machine. 
1) Build the entire NSLU2 distribution including the installation
kernel. (I had to add NSLU2 to the list of armeb targets in some
makefiles IIRC)
2) Copy the distribution sets to a partition on your usb disk.
3) Boot the installation kernel and follow the instructions.
