Someone was asking the other day about mobile hard drives. Just came
across this, and it might be worth considering. At EURO 199 for 40Gb,
it's not over the top.
Mandrakelinux GlobeTrotter, powered by LaCie Mobile Hard Drive
GlobeTrotter is the first Linux distribution that you can bring anywhere
to transform any desktop into your desktop. GlobeTrotter consists of
the Mandrakelinux distribution pre-installed on the ultra-compact 'LaCie
Mobile Hard Drive.' Just connect GlobeTrotter via USB to any computer*
and power up to enjoy a full-featured Mandrakelinux desktop. The
hardware on the host computer is automatically detected. Moreover,
GlobeTrotter doesn't make any changes to the host computer, so you can
safely use the GlobeTrotter anywhere without worry!
