I have one on order and will post report once I've installed it, but I am reasonably confident it will work after reading this:
The drive in the link posted has a rotational speed of 5400 rpm. Is this the same drive or does the one you are using have a rotational speed of 3400 rpm?

I found a 60GB LeCie on Amazon with a rotational speed of 3600 rpm? Is that the one you have?

I also found a 160GB with a 5400 rotational speed for less money if 5400 rpm works.

Little help from Mr. Guinea Pig if he'll be so kind?
