uh...your best bet is to find out which driver you need for the hard drive, then visit their website and talk to someone in support and ask if they have a linux driver you could use thats it...intallation should be and ease

im not thjat familiar with external hard drives but lots of usb items (cameras, mp3 players, etc...) on linux can just be mounted like a regular partion. usb items are usually on /dev/sda1 or something similar. try mounting that into a directory.
