  1. I'm not sure why, but these boxes seem to show the internal HDD as sda, and the usb ports as sdb... It actually took me quite a while to figure that out.

Anyway, after doing lot's of comparisons between the boxes, editing and renaming and re-linking the ifcfg-GigaStorey file, they are both functioning. The problem is that whenever I start or restart the network on box 2, it reports the following error: Bringing up interface GigaStorey: RTNETLINK answers: File exists Error addi
