USB Drive \ Mp3 + USB Storage

I need to buy either one, I'm looking to spend no more than $100 and that has good compatiablity with Linux (typcially RH). Any suggestions?

Any of the USB devices will work as long as you have scsi emulation enabled and usb mass storage, which you probably do. Assume you do until you have a problem.
Plug in the device and mount it, probably /dev/sda1.
