External hard drive to install linux on?
I got a Seagate FreeAgent 80gb hard drive, I wanted to install linux on it and have a portable linux installation that I could boot on any system.
So, long story short, it had errors and remounted itself readonly, the hard drive isn't bad, google shows nothing but people with the same problem and no solution, and #linux on freenode wasn't able to help.
Now I'm going to take it back to the store and find a better one. I have more money and can afford a bigger one now anyway. What external hard drive models have people had success with booting linux from?
