My BUSlink USB hard drive won't do for NetBSD because, alas, NetBSD says this
when I plug it in...
Nov 22 20:00:21 gus /netbsd: ugen0 at uhub0 port 1
Nov 22 20:00:21 gus /netbsd:
Nov 22 20:00:21 gus /netbsd: ugen0: Prolific Technology Inc. ATAPI-4
Bridge Controller, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 2

So I'm on a quest for a USB hard drive that WILL work for BOTH NetBSD and
Win2K on i386. Does anybody have certain knowledge of such a beast? I mean
like, you have one and KNOW that it works? I'll go buy it and chuck the
BUSlink off on my poor sister.
