    hi ppl, i am interested to buy and additional hard drive because mine is only 20 gigs, and I want to have a hard drive to run linux on separately here is some questions that I have

    2. can I have more than one internal hd?

    thx ppl

    1. no all comps do not have usb 2.0, but it has to be quite old not to...what is it called? or if you built it what is your motherboard called? and usb 2.0 is not just something you can get... its hardware not software. you can get a card that fits in a pci slot that has 2 usb 2.0 ports in it though
    2. yes

    it doesnt have to be in that spot, you just have to have that port

    if you computer came with a 20gb drive then it is quite likely it would have at least one usb port in it

    if you don't have one you could get something like this. if you have the money and a free pci slot which you probably do. this is 30$ you can likely get a cheaper version if you computer doesn't have a 2.0 usb port
