I have a spare 200GB hard drive I'd like to set up in a NAS enclosure so I don't have to have one computer running all the time just for file sharing. I've seen a few, very affordable, NAS enclosures but they all say "Windows/Mac" but very few of the really inexpensive ones say they support Linux. I might not know enough of the specifics but why would they NOT work with Linux? If they are in essence a DHCP client, my OpenSUSE box should see it and access it correctly, no? If I format the drive FAT32, both my Linux and Windows boxes should be able to read and write, correct?
Does anyone have any experience with this?
