Greetings

I'm looking into a purchasing an external USB drive to put PCLinux OS
on it and the use it with a different computer to boot from it. Should
that be powered by USB or direct power is better ? What brand/model
would you recommend ? Will I have troubles using it in Europe where
power is 220V ?

TIA

Andy

I'll add to what the others have said, briefly: USB is still rather
slow. If you can afford it and your hardware will support it, get
firewire.

thank you

i'll be looking for one with both,
to make sure I can connect with the comp if only usb available
