I got a separate caddy and hard drive, seems the cheapest way of doing it. Got them from ebuyer:

The size of the HDD is up to you but 40GB is adequate for me.

Can you boot up from this drive if necessary - assuming its USB connected. Thanks David

Can you boot up from this drive? it depends how old your computer and if it will boot from USB. It's down to the BIOS not the drive

PS for instance I have a XP Laptop that as no Floppy drive. I bought a USB floppy and it boots from that if I need to but it's only about 12 months old

I've got a couple of Maxtor's - 80 and 160mb - had them for a couple of years and had no trouble with them at all.
