OK I don't really have a good title yet but I figure I can post works in progress and other tips I've come across or other interesting things.

UPDATE: new blog note on how I somewhat got it working!

To prove the power of open source and linux to my roommate, I'm going to get his Plasmon D Series dvd robot working under linux as a NAT box that will not only be accessible from windows but hopefully the PS3 and capable of trans coding incompatible files. I have mostly been researching the topic and I believe I have all the software... Then why isn't it done yet? configuring... and figuring out the damn system. Though this is a completely new thing to me (well not the linux half) I have faith I'll get it all put together. At which point I will back up the hardrive/setup, make donations to the major components, and make a YouTube video of it all working on marvelous harmony.

Considering the software from plasmon to do all this on windows is about $5000 I good comparable donation would have to be in order. Anyway... I'll probably post progress and a guide here and make available configuration files and startup scripts where possible.

Currently I've been playing with getting autofs (con)figured out and setting up a packaging environment for and necessary start up scripts and any extra support scripts I may write. The next step is getting all the other support software that is required by dvd-vault (osvault/optivault/openfiler derivative/whatever the hell it wants to be called) and configuring it on slackware.

Why slackware you ask?
* It's a clean base system.
* I'll learn more of what goes into it.
* slackware startup scripts are extremely easy to follow
* why not?
* wouldn't you?
* I'd rather make a donation to slackware than most other distros
* etc.

OK that's enough for now.
