I just got a hold of a Rainbow Storage brand "3.5/5.25 External Drive
Enclosure." This is a case for installing desktop IDE devices, such as a CDR
drive or a hard drive into, and it contains a power supply and USB output.

What I'd like to do is put the CDR drive from my desktop computer into in, and
use this with the USB port of my 770z TP. It's 1.1 USB, I believe.

Has anyone had any experience with using one of these enclosures with the USB
port on a Linux Thinkpad? Success stories? What's the entry in /etc/fstab for
a USB CDR drive?
