The BR6104KP is the same as the BR6104K but has two USB 1.1 master ports that can be used to connect a printer and use it as a print server.
Also you can use USB Flash disk for root filesystem (needed patch for usb root device).
With this patch it is possible to boot with the root filesystem on a USB (or other hotplug) harddisk. Normally this doesn't work because USB devices are detectly asynchronously (from a kernel thread). At the time a USB harddisk is discovered, the root mounting code has already given up.
With this patch the kernel will wait forever until the root device appears.
It's against 2.4.14-pre8. It's been reported that this patch doesn't work if you enable devfs!
Kernel patches for Linux.
Robert Collins updated the patch for 2.4.22: boot-usb.patch. Thanks!
