The Linksys product literature [2] never mentions the word Linux, so I 
gather a) that it is an add-on and b) that the user group [1] is quite 
unofficial.  For those curious, the price is about $100.

The product lit also says 0 about the internal hardware but I found this: 
http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Info/CPUOverview.  266 Mhtz, 32 Mb Ram + 8 
MB flash, which is pretty minimal these days.  So unless one wants it for 
the designed purpose (or similar), it is not obviously cheap.

I am curious what Python application you have in mind.
