Though I've varying levels of experience with a variety of linux distros I've neither a passionate interest (I have more experience with OpenBSD/NetBSD/FreeBSD) nor much more than a few weeks tinkering experience with the TiVo. Since I'm using the monte hack I've been making my changes directly and launching stuff at the end of rc.sysinit ... but I've had a problem setting environment variables that way. I tried to add the lines mentioned for mfs_ftp at the end of my rc.sysinit ... namely;

TIVO_ROOT=
MFS_DEVICE=/dev/hda10
IGNOREEOF=1000
export TIVO_ROOT MFS_DEVICE IGNOREEOF

...but that doesn't seem to work. I actually found I only needed the IGNOREEOF line so I cut out the rest, but it's not sticking. This smacks of a newbie mistake.
