After going through quite a lot to install SLES, Oracle and other goodies, I'd like to back it up. So today I bought a WD Passport 500GB. I was promised by the Fry's Electronics guy that it was compatible with Linux. Guess what? The WD Passport web site doesnt seem to support anything other than Windows and very little Apple.

Anyone out here setup a WD Passport type product on Linux with success, and with software that can perform a regular backup, and retrieval?

My many thanks, Jay
