my nslu2 just went dead so i purchased a dockstar and installed debian on it
thanks for the great job

i have a few questions though.

1. i understand that both nslu2 and dockstar have arm processor, if i take the usbdrive from the debian-nslu2 and put it in the dockstar (uboot is installed), will it just work ? (my nslu2 has a usbdrive with sda1 - rootfs on ext3, and sda2 - swap)

2. if i connect more than one usbdrive. how does the kernel decide which is sda and which sdb ? is that consistent after rebbot ? what if i switch drives between usb ports ? how does uboot determine which drive to boot from
