I have decided to make a linux server (Debian to be specific) and I am wondering if there is any way to connect a hard drive to the computer. The computer has usb 1 ports which I would like to avoid using and also a IEEE 1394 port at the front. I was wondering is there is a way to connect an external hard drive to it from the IEEE 1394 port. Any help is much appreciated. If there is no way of connecting to a usb hard drive, is you know any IEEE 1394 hard drives, that would also be appreciated. The laptop that is being used is an old IPC by the way.
