    I'm setting up SuSe 8.1 on a dual P3-800 and am wondering if anyone has had experience installing a USB 2.0 tape drive (portable Seagate Travan 10/20)? All documentation I've read from SuSe.com and an e-mail I've received from Seagate tech support suggest it's not possible.

    Would it be possible, however, to run a Win2000 session in VMWare and have the device recognised from there?

    Also, which USB 2.0 controller card(s) would anyone recommend using with this drive?

    Many thanks,
