Before I turn my brand new 500GB shiny network drive into a doorstop,  
I thought of asking... Does anybody know of any way to format his  
drive as ext2/3 so that you can back Linux files up to it and it will  
preserve the file permissions? I have plugged the thing in via USB  
and formatted it ok to ext2 but the onboard linux implementation  
doesn't seem to understand ext2 so now I have a drive of size 0 on  
the network.
