Actually unless the system does a lot of swapping (in which case SeZo is right) I doubt if HDD orientation will make a major difference .. effectively this is only going to have to keep up with an ethernet link.
(theoretically what SeZo says does make sense though)

Putting the CD-ROM at the end would also make it easier to replace it with a hdd at a later date for maximum storage without disrupting the rest of the setup.

That kinda makes sense :) .. I thought Debian uses UUID's to identify partitions .. that said it would certainly make more sense to a human trying to make sense of it as we saw before ;)

Although I have the usb device plugged in it is not showing at all under network interfaces, how should I proceed from here

You could start with this:
OK, you're going to NEED an active internet connection (ethernet cable) to add the non-free repo, then install the firmware (firmware-atheros)

see here:
http://wiki.debian.org/ar9170usb

[EDIT]

Or you could download the deb from here:
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/f/firmware-nonfree/firmware-atheros_0.28+squeeze1_all.deb
transfer it across and install it with
Code: [Select]
dpkg -i firmware-atheros_0.28+squeeze1_all.deb
but it would probably be easier with an ethernet connection ;)

Have you got an ethernet connection to the internet ?

Ok I have an active ethernet connection and I can log into the Web GUI so I'm good to go that way if that's ok :)

2 secs .. it would be easier to add the repo to /etc/apt/sources.list

then just download/install it along with wpasupplicant

Do you remember how to add the repo to sources.list ?

Run
Code: [Select]
nano /etc/apt/sources.list

and add 2 NEW lines at the bottom that reads:-

# Debian repos added by Emegra
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free


SAVE the file, and then run:

Code: [Select]
apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
apt-get install firmware-atheros wpasupplicant

did that work ?

There is an update manager within the Web GUI with a whole lot of available updates it may be in there

it might be  .. but I'm guessing sources.list only contains the security update repos  .. like it did before

If you've added the repo as I said .. DO NOT .. use the update manager in the webUI yet.

Close the update manager .. then try again.

and can we slow down a bit here .. until we get the wireless stuff installed and that repo disabled again.

[EDIT]

The update manager wasn't actually getting updates was it ? .. if so let it finish.

No, the updates have to be selected manually and I didn't set anything running
