    It depends on how much space... and how much money you want to sell. I have had my eye on a 20 gig USB 2.0 External Hard drive for a few weeks. Its only 150

      Its only 150 bucks. Really Nice too. I'd suggest something like that.

        Message 3 of 4 , May 3, 2004
          I have a Latitude CPx running SuSE 8.2. I've been using a disk and 4mm
          tape drive on another system, accessing them over the net, for external
          storage and backups.

          Well, both the disk and tape drive are 12 years old, and the tape drive
          is starting to fail.

          So I'm looking for recommendations for what to replace them with. This
          time around, I'd prefer direct-attach (e.g., USB), rather than having to
          access them via another host.

          thanks,
          mike

            I picked up a usb-to-IDE drive case on ebay for $35 (watch the shipping) and
            then bought a 3.5" 60 gb harddrive and put in it. I now have a 60 gb usb
            drive and it works great. Total cost was much than a usb specific external
            drive.
