External USB Drive



I have been looking at getting an external USB drive for backing up 
files on my home network and I see the Maxtor 3000LE (120 GB) is 
selling for around $200 FRN's.  I know the Linux kernel supports USB 
but how well does it work?  I've read some horror stories about 
poorly designed devices that do not support the specification well 
and make up for their sins by diddling the drivers -- an option not 
easily available in Linux.

The difference between robbery and taxes is simple:   The first is 
someone threatening to hurt you if you do not give them your money.   
The second is legal.
