This is an old revision of the document!

… In the DNS-323 0.5 install link page, (and more than likely other similar instructions in the site) fonz mentions “Volume 1” as the install target often. An extra trouble shooting tip for truly new installers might be to instruct how to make sure they have the right volume [ ie ftp ls on mine gives gives the following:] lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 10 Aug 17 09:29 Volume_1 → /mnt/HD_b2 lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 10 Aug 17 09:29 Volume_2 → /mnt/HD_a2 or add “if the telnet is not active after the restart, copy the files to “Volume 2” and reboot.” Since HD_a2 is what your script targets.

I also read a Aug 09 post where someone was told “you should have searched the forums” which, although true, can be avoided by adding some extra collected troubleshooting tips to the install instructions. Thanks for all your work on this project - it is quite amazing! This wiki is a good place to good place to help people through baby-steps rather than a forum reply of 'go read a linux book and come back to us'

This is an example: As a newbie myself, I feel hesitant to make page changes, so I merely put forth that once a power user answers a question, it can be valuable to wiki it as well. Thanks again - hva5hiaa

– Thanks hva5hiaa. I like the idea and added a troubleshooting section. Feel free to add pointers to topics you think are relevant. Also, don't hesitate to add to other secions. However, this page is meant as a starting point for exploring ffp, like a table of contents. It therefore contains mostly pointers to the forum or other websites, and a small amount of things you need to get going right after install. – fonz
