Friends,

I have ran into this beautiful external hard disk of Western Digital, My Book Premium Edition http://www.westerndigital.com/en/pro...sp?DriveID=224.

I wonder if anyone has tried it in his/her linux box. I loved it in the first sight , but I wonder about compatibility issues.

I'd be pleased to have your comments.

Regards,

id imagine it would work, if your motherboard and OS supports and is properly configured for USB 2.0 and/or FireWire, then it should be just like any other device.. except really, really big

Thanks for your reply. However as far as I learnt from the forums, Linux is going well with SATA disks.

I wonder for Gentoo 2006 and SuSE 9.3 Pro.
