Yeap, that's what they said at the shop, that there shouldn't be any
problems with linux. I've tried two cases.
One was a Konig (?) case, but I couldn't get it recognized. Something
about it not accepting the USB address it was assigned.
The other was an IcyBox. It seemed to work at first, but then the
computer became unresponsive and I had to 'halt -nf' it. Didn't get it
to work after that.
I've tried two different Western Digital disks. I've had a lot of
problems with WD disks, so it could be the hdds' problem.
Anyway, eventually I connected my hdd to a PATA to SATA interface on my
motherboard and transferred my data.
