Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My One touch came with a CD, on that CD is a software suite called "Dantz Retrospect" which is ported for Windows or Mac, not Linux. The button on the hard drive enclosure will deploy the Retrospect software with one touch. And the installer on the CD links the two.
You may be hard pressed for a Linux installer for a Maxtor One touch enclosure that will link that button to some form of backup software.
Distribution: Solaris 9 & 10, Mac OS X, Ubuntu Server
Retrospect runs on Linux, but it's commercial, and, if they didn't license it or integrate it for linux with the one touch, that may be a problem. The question is, what happens when you push that one touch button? And how does that translate on linux? Heck, if you could figure that out, maybe you could link it to whatever opensource backup software you wanted.
Distribution: Debian Etch (KDE); Mint Daryna (Gnome) and Mandriva 2008 (KDE)
I have a one touch mini that I bought a year and a half ago. I hated it when I had windows because the software was horrible - it would freeze up for no reason, not run at all, etc... So, when I switched to linux I formatted it to ext 3 and I drag and drop or simply copy whatever I need onto it. Much much happier with it now - no kidding. For me, the syncing software just plain sucked with windows - maybe that's why I got it on sale?
