These pages describe how to get a custom 2.6 kernel running on the WGT634U and mounting a root filesystem over NFS. They may provide more - it just depends on how much I get done :)
You need not have any embedded systems experience. Knowing how to compile a kernel however would be a good start. Experience using cvs, patch, make would also come in handy, but hopefully I'll describe it in enough detail.
I use Debian. However, this should be mostly distro independant (apart from installing the odd package or two).
Just for the record, in my network I give the router an IP of 192.168.1.1, and the host system gets 192.168.1.10
Input or output from a shell are shown in a cyan border:
A $ prompt indicates a normal (user) account, a # prompt is the root user.
# this is run as root
Contents (or changes to files are shown in a purple border:
this would be the contents of a file
A big thanks goes out to Jolt for helping me with this. Without him I'd probably still be stuck trying to get a kernel built...
