>From Memory (the manual is available on line at their website):

Write all data to both drives

Backup one drive to the other drive on the NSLU2

Backup an NSLU2 drive to a remote share (on a PC, another NSLU2, etc.)

Back up a remote share onto an NSLU2 drive

The last three options can be placed on a schedule.

USB "dongles" can be used on one of the USB 2.0 ports (accessed as a network drive) as well...

The NSLU2 is linux-based, and goolge should point out sites describing how to telnet into the box,and drop of executables to allow for additional services (like NFS). For my use, my OS X and WinXP/95 laptops all access the SMB shares just fine. I don't plan on dropping NFS on my unit, but I was very happy to see that it could be done... I bet Linksys/Cisco will add this in the future, but I have heard nothing to support this...
