recommendations for good external optical drives
I bough a thinkpad x60 recently and plan to install either fedora or ubuntu on it. Since it does not have a cd drive, I need to buy an external drive (dock is too expensive for me). Does anyone have any recommendations, or know what wroks and what does not? Do the standard ones like memorex at circuit city or iomega at staples work? These are generally sold as windows xp compatible, and am not sure what to make of that for linux. These probably need some software installed on windows. That probably wont work then on linux. Suggestions?i prefer cd-rw and do not need dvd-r or dvd-rw.
