RE: Network Storage Drives

Thanks to everyone that responded. 

Here are the product details. There isn't much here. I know the software
won't work on Linux. However, I'm not sure if I can. I don't need all of
the things 
it does. I just want to be able to share a drive with my laptop (which
runs Windows and Linux) and my server (which runs Linux). I want to be
able to 
use the drive to back up my windows items (on one partition of the
drive), and my server and laptop to one or more partitions on the drive.
Can you
 mount partitions of the drive to the server (i.e. the ability to have
ext2 filesystems on the network drive that are mounted to the server) or
do you have to 
mount the entire drive (in that case the entire drive would be a
Windows-type filesystem)? Does anyone see any red flags with this drive
(i.e. it won't work with my RH 9 laptop and server)?

I'm running RH9 and am looking at purchasing a Network Storage Device (a
cheap 40GB drive from Best Buy). Would there be any 
compatibility issues with this (I can't imagine so since it is accessed
via the network)? The reason I ask is because the drive specs state
that a "Windows" type system is required. I'm thinking it is only
because of the software they include (for backing up files, etc.).
is there a way to mount the device without using NFS (I'm going to
partition the drive. Some of the space will be windows fs, others will
be ext2)?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
