Drives under 80GB are not on the new market now and at pricing on 55-69 80GB
ATA drives are not a large investment.

Hi Everyone,


I have a simple question that I am trying to figure out.  I had gone to a
local computer store to purchase a HD for my 1.0 GHZ computer and was told
that only one model was compatible to my old PC.  It was an 80 GB HD which
was fine for my Linux distro needs.


I have now received an Acer  PIII 600 without a HD and am looking at getting
one for another Linux install.  What makes a HD compatible? Where can I find
a good priced, low capacity drive (less than 60 GB)
