If it may interest you, I tried a couple of lacie devices (a 5big and a
network space 2) and, while they use linux+samba, their interface only
allows joining an AD domain. I "hacked" the network space by replacing
the stock firmware with debian so I could join it to my samba 3 domain.
I didn't bother to modify the 5big (no easy way to do it a the time and
the changes made via a backdoor shell would be reverted on boot), so
we're using it as an unauthenticated data store (for standard software,
catalogues, etc.).
