New System Update

I ordered that USB/eSATA back up drive from linpc.us.  It's pictured above.

The folks at linpc.us are partitioning this 1TB drive as FAT32 on one side and a portion of the drive to be formatted for Linux EXT3.

The reason is, FAT32 cannot read a single file larger than 4 gigabytes.  I have a single file that is 9 gigabytes in size on my current system.  I need to move this file from my existing system to the new system.  FAT32 cannot handle this.  But, EXT3 can!

Once again, another great reason to Get Linux!
