Before I spend the money on one, does anyone know if RH 7.1 or SuSE 7.1 will support an LS120 drive.

Yeah, support for the LS120s has been in the Linux kernel for a while, although I've never played with one myself. I imagine they use the 'IDE Floppy' config when you build your kernel.

Yeah I have the LS120 in both my machines and its just like a Floppy.... just like in Windows, its emulated as a Floppy and works the same as in Linux. I have not yet had a problem with mine.
