Just connect it into the back of your SCSI controller, lets say a 2940) and
just ensure that that SCSI ID is set to SPIN-UP and the LUN is set to
Look here...this is basically what you are looking at...note that the
firewire Drives(IDE) are much cheaper than SCSI...
Also, remember that you wont really feel the benefit of a 10k LVD SCSI drive
over a 7.2k IDE drive on an external connector...
The Maxtor package does indeed look promises.....but it is Firewire and you
are going down the route of the unknown in Linux compatibilty terms...
But, if you want to know exactly what you are working for and require
stability, I'd go for the Lacie 18g LVD External drive

Subject: [ILUG] External SCSI Hard Drive
Does anybody have information where I'd be able to purchase an external SCSI
hard drive that's Linux compatible (this means it's not OT!). I'm looking
something with about 20G and about 10,000rpm.
I've scouted around PC World & Compustore but to no avail.
