Well, I don't have a tremendous variety of experience, but I've had good
luck with HP Colorado 5/10/20GB drives on the lower end of things (my only
experience with these are internal IDE.)

Subject: [lug] Tape Drives on Linux

Hey all,

    I've been having a hell of a time getting Iomega Ditto 2GB, and Easy 800
drives working with linux.  I've spent a while trying to get them to work.
    There is not very good documentation on getting
them working, and success stories are low compared to complaints. I'm don't
want to use iomega drives anymore.  Does anybody have suggestions as to
which tape drives work the best under Red Hat Linux?

I Need
1. External (Unless there is a really good internal drive, but I have
   about 8 servers that will need to be using backup, so...)
2. Non-SCSI
3. At least 2GB storage capacity on the tapes

Any suggestions?

Greg Horne
