LiNXT is a perl script to let Linux transfer files to the NXT brick.

By the way, if you're going to sell your kit on eBay don't sell it with 
a BuyNow price of anything less than about £150-180. I've seen these 
kits sell for over £200 even though they are worth £180 new, probably 
because they are so hard to get, hardly any shops have them in stock 
just now...
