    External USB hard drive?

    Can someone tell me if I can use this (or similar) external USB hard drive with a Linux box? Anything special I would have to do to get it working?

    hi cloverm,
    yea - that should work just fine (it is usb 1.1 compatible). it will be set up as a USB mass storage and will be accessed as a SCSI drive. hth.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try then. It looks like this would be the fastest and least expensive form of backing up 80 gigs.

    Another question. How can I mirror two (internal) hard drives in Linux?

    hey Cloverm - you can use software based RAID level 1 to do that.
    here is a nice doc:
