i'm not sure i'm following this. how can i create a non-sparse image? the only options sd gives me are sparseimage read/write and read only images.

also, i bought the nslu2 and i've formatted an external drive as ext3. i'm mounting it through samba and trying to use sd to create a sparse image on it. i keep getting error messages and no disk image is created. here's what the log says:
