Since the NSLU2 has 2 USB ports, it needs an overrated power supply to
handle the worst case which would be two USB clients with their max
draw of .5 A each.  The actual power consumption, which I haven't yet
measured, is much less.


Our embedded platform of choice these days is the Fonera 2.  It's at
the high end for internal memory, totally open software, has a USB
port and is $50.  Unfortunately, as of yesterday, it was out of stock.
