Janak, actually, I assumed it was an additional drive since he was buying a new PC from Dell and getting a new HD from CompUSA. I figured he would be booting the new PC and wanted the additional drive as an extra and as a way to get any of the old data that could be recovered onto the new machine.
Since it was a second drive, I figured external might be great.
I don't know that I can boot the the external drive. I doubt it though.
I agree that you want USB 2.0. I tried using it on my laptop that only had a 1.1 connection and very quickly bought a USB 2.0 Belking PC Card.
