Well, so far so good.  It recognises the drive.. (Maxtor basic 1.5TB,
on offer at Maplin for a few more days..)

root@nas3:~ # mount
none on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/hda1 on /system type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda2 on /mnt/IDE1 type ext2 (usrquota,grpquota)
/mnt/IDE3 on /mnt/IDE1/public/music type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /mnt/USB1 type ntfs (umask=0000,nls=utf8)
root@nas3:~ # df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1                98.7M     17.2M     76.5M  18% /system
/dev/hda2               457.9G    226.1G    208.5G  52% /mnt/IDE1
/mnt/IDE3               458.4G    231.8G    203.4G  53% /mnt/IDE1/public/music
/dev/sda1                 1.4T    108.2M      1.4T   0% /mnt/USB1

There was a long delay before reporting on /dev/sda1, though.  That
might be because it's big, and ntfs.

I've just got to re-format it now into something I can use.
